The custom of Trooping the Color dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th Century when the Colors of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle and were therefore trooped in front of the soldiers every day to make sure that every man could recognize those of his own regiment. In London, the Foot Guards used to do this from 1755 onwards as part of their daily Guard Mounting on Horse Guards and the ceremony of the modern Trooping the Color parade is along similar lines. In 1805 the parade was for the first time carried out to celebrate the Sovereign's birthday. This impressive display of pageantry is now held on the occasion of the Queen's Official Birthday. It takes place in June each year to celebrate the official Birthday of the Sovereign and is carried out by her personal troops, the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with the Queen herself attending and taking the salute. This historic recording places the listener front and center at the ceremony. Classic recording, digitally remastered.
