Trooping the colour, celebrating The Queen's official 92 Birthday.

Have just watched the Queen's birthday celebration trooping the colour and what a splendid spectacle it was, as usual.

It may for some seem somewhat old fashioned to see troops marching about proudly celebrating their previous battle victories watched by a reigning monarch which some may think is also old fashioned and outdated.

I rather wonder how many other countries in the world could put on a similar show, both from the point of actually having a reigning monarch to display and a splendid army of men with a proud heritage to boast about.

Tourists come from all round the world to witness the spectacle and I for one am only too happy to admit I absolutely love it and am proud to be considered old fashioned.
