Queen Elizabeth II Presents New Colours to the Scots Guards Thimble

£8.95
HM Queen Elizabeth II braved the torrential down pours in London on 18 May, as she presented the Scots Guards with new colours. Dressed in an elegant mint ensemble and carrying a matching umbrella, Her Majesty stepped into the gardens of Buckingham Palace where she praised the guards for having served with distinction. More than 2,200 guests watched as the 1st Battalion and F Company Scots Guards were honoured by the Queen. The Queen, who is their Colonel-in-Chief, last presented the Scots Guards with their colours during her Golden Jubilee year of 2002. These were later taken by the 1st Battalion on five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. The colours - or regimental flags - are treasured by the regiment because they were originally used as rallying points on the battlefield to help troops avoid becoming disorientated by the fog of war.
