Coldstream Guards recreate historic march
As most of you know the Coldstream Guards were originally Monk's Regiment of the Protectorate and they marched south 400 miles to effectively switch sides to the new restored monarchy. This march is being recreated today by modern day Coldstream Guardsmen to raise money for fallen and injured comrades from recent conflicts. It's bitterly cold up there in Scotland at the moment but apparently morale is high. Good luck to them - read the whole story here (also has a link to donate to this worthy cause).
