To make the Bank Holiday Weekend stretch a little longer I took Thursday and Friday off and on a whim decided to see if the guys were doing any ceremonial duties on either day. I was in luck, Martin tweeted back to say that they were doing Changing of the Guard in Windsor and that they could get me into the Castle.
Now I remember going to Windsor when I was about seven but don't remember much about it. I went about 12 years ago when I was taking my niece, who was then four, to Legoland which meant going through Windsor but not actually seeing it so I was looking forward to seeing Windsor in all it's glory.
Martin had told me to meet him at the gate of the barracks so I dutifully turned up to discover that I was to be escorted into the Castle with the wonderful Greg along with many of the partners of the band and their children with an amazing view:
This is the band arriving with the crowds in the background
As you can see the crowd is big!
And this was my view - not a crowd in sight! Amazing
I hope I did them proud though....
And finally here they are taking the guard back to the Barracks.
Again the band gave me another opportunity and was well worth the journey. Special thanks to Martin, Greg, Fraser and the nameless policeman for looking after me! If you ever get the chance do check the band out. They look and sound amazing and will make you proud to be British but also put a smile on your face!!
