British Military Band Uniforms: The Household Division by WENDY SKILTON

By WENDY SKILTON

Эта книга иллюстрирует обмундирование музыки современных военных частей британской гвардии. Королевская гвардия (по прозвищу "Bearskins" - "медвежьи шкуры") ? это личная охрана английского монарха. В наши жизнь опасаться за жизнь короля или королевы особенно не приходится, и сегодня гвардейцы выполняют, в основном, церемониальные обязанности. Однако гвардейские традиции зародились около трёх веков назад, когда британские монархи действительно выходили на поле боя. Солдат в гвардейские полки отбирали очень строго, это были лучшие части.

Британская гвардейская дивизия состоит сегодня из двух конных и пяти пехотных полков. Кавалерия ? это Лейб-гвардейский конный полк (его форма ? красные мундиры, а зимой еще и красные накидки) и Конногвардейский королевский полк ? в синих мундирах и в синих накидках. Пехотные полки гвардии Её величества ? Колдстримский, Гренадерский, Шотландский, Ирландский и Валлийский. Все гвардейцы-пехотинцы носят высокие медвежьи шапки и красные мундиры. То есть отличить друг от друга солдат того или иного полка непросто ? разве что по расположению пуговиц на мундире и цвету кокарды на шапке.
