Photo taken at HM Tower of London on 17th June 2006 on the occasion of the Yeoman Warders celebration of the Queens Birthday.
The Corps was joined on this occasion by fellow Drummers from the HAC and also the Yorkshire Corps - following a musical display on the Waterloo Barracks Square all guests attending fell in behind the Corps and marched back to the Warders Mess for a Barbecue. The Corps is lead here by D/Major Warren Alexander- Pye HAC.
On Sat 22nd July the GDCODA played at the Garden party held by the Grenadier Guards Association Reading branch held at the home of their President Major Hon Jeremy Monson and his Lady.Having learned on the recce that the President remembered a march from his serving days he was invited to conduct it during the afternoon - Hazelmere ! Although playing under cover until approximately 1530 the weather then cleared up and we were able to conclude our programme at 1700 hrs with a Marching/Static Retreat programme - a grand day being had by all thanks to the Presidents generosity - our next event is a Practice session at Windsor on 3 Sep 06 followed by the Henley Show and Gren Gds windsor Branch Cocktail Party
This is a Coldstream Bn - mid 1800's and I believe in Waterloo Bks in the Tower - the main point of interest being the Mascot who also appears to be a Bb flute Player -
