    That's my tasking this summer, stand in front of Canada's Governor General house and stand watch. No moving, no talking. Stand at ease, be in a lot of pictures from the billion azns every day. Fun times. :big grin:

    Keep my bearing? Nope.

    I just shut off my ears and my eyes, and go over stories or whatever in my head. Except when hot chicks go by. :o

    seriously though, what happens if you have to scratch or sneeze?

    Since you can't control sneezes (and it's dangerous) you're allowed to sneeze. Real soldiers don't have to scratch. :o

    If you can't control a scratch until it's gone, you'd have problems doing a recce. :dunno:

    Not always Coldsteam Guards.

    It's usually one of the Regiments of the Household Division but sometimes others take over for a while.

    The Household Division has seven Regiments: The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals, (they make up the Household Cavalry Regiment) and five Regiments of Foot Guards.

    The Grenadier Guards
    The Coldstream Guards
    The Scots Guards
    The Irish Guards
    The Welsh Guards

    It's a tradition of the Guards in Ottawa. They have them in Brit land too. :dunno: exactly where or why it started.

    I'd assume it's an inherited tradition...

    In the UK they've been doing it for centuries, of course back then it was very real.

    Erm no, real in a sense they may be required to kill any group that turned up at the door to install their leader as King.
