Guarding The Queen

They are arguably the most recognizable soldiers in the world – the face of British Royal ceremony – resplendent in bearskins and scarlet tunics. They are the Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace and are a frontline infantry unit doing active service in Afghanistan and Iraq… The Grenadier Guards – comprising the Nijemegen Company and the 1st Battalion - are the most senior infantry regiment in the British Army, named in honour of their defeat of the Grenadiers of The French Imperial Guard at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 - and this year they celebrate their 350th Anniversary. Here we see first hand, what life is really like for these celebrated soldiers. An exclusive and revealing insight. While the Nijmegen Company are based at Wellington Barracks in London, guarding the Queen and the Crown Jewels, the 1st Battalion is based in Aldershot, ready for military action as an infantry regiment.
