Army Life


The Army carries out tasks given to it by the democratically elected Government of the United Kingdom (UK).

Its primary task is to help defend the interests of the UK, which consists of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This may involve service overseas as part of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Force or any other multi-national deployment. Soldiers may also be deployed on United Nations (UN) operations and used to help in other emergencies.


The Band shares these duties with the Bands of the other Foot Guard Regiments - the Coldstream Guards, Scots Guards, Irish Guards and Welsh Guards - and together they form the "Massed Bands" for the Queen's Birthday Parade, Remembrance Sunday Parade (at the Cenotaph, Whitehall) and other major State and Ceremonial occasions.

Although the Band is permitted to tour abroad, to broadcast, make recordings and to undertake private engagements its main function is that of a Regimental Band and, as such, takes its place in State Occasions and at Public Duties. These include the Queen's Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour), the daily Mounting of the Queen's Guard in the Forecourt of Buckingham Palace and at Windsor Castle, Investitures, State Banquets and at many of Her Majesty's engagements at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and elsewhere.
