The Royal Horse Guards are the symbol of military pageantry in all its glory. Clad in polished helmets and cuirasses, blue tunics and long black boots they were frequently seen outside Whitehall. Formed as heavy cavalry for Cromwell's spartan army, they served at Dettingen and Warburg, Waterloo and Tel-el-Kebir. The Blues fought on foot at Abu Klea, where their action in closing the square saved the column but cost them their colonel. They used machine guns to deadly effect in the Great War, and were the first troops into Brussels in 1944. They were amalgamated with The Royal Dragoons as The Blues and Royals in 1969. Signed on the title page by Sir Brian Horrocks.
