Relayed from THE HORSE GUARDS PARADE
The Trooping of the King's Colour is the most impressive display of military ceremonial that London sees during the year. The Ordinary Trooping of the Colour, that takes place every morning on the Horse Guards Parade is itself an imposing spectacle, and today's performance is carried out on a far grander scale by guards drawn from the whole Brigade of Guards.
The B.B.C.'s commentators will be in an ideal position, over the Horse Guards arch leading from Whitehall to the Parade. Directly below them will be the King himself, and the whole of the ceremony takes place under their eyes. The sharp words of command shouted across the square, the clang of rifle-butts and jingling of harness, and the music of the massed hands will all, it is hoped, come into the microphone, as well as the running commentary itself.
