What's it about?
The regiment was formed in 1650 by George Monck, a General in Oliver Cromwell’s “New Model Army” and can therefore claim to be one of the oldest regiments in the world. In 1661, shortly after the restoration of the monarchy, they were re-commissioned by King Charles II as household Troops and from the town of Coldstream, which lies just inside Scotland near Berwick-Upon-Tweed where it was first formed.
Since 1945, the Band has performed world wide, including tours to North America, Japan and Australasia and achieved international acclaim when it played the American National Anthem in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace following the September 11th disasters.
The Band of the Coldstream Guards has now been in existence for over 200 years of continuous military service, which make it one of the oldest Military Bands in the world.
