Celebrating our 140th Anniversary

Have been privileged to Participate and take members to represent BB at events, at which our Patron, HM Queen Elizabeth II attended. Having attended the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Trooping the Colour, never did we dare dream we would be taking part again for the Platinum Jubilee in 2022. This was to be be the final time we as a company got to see HM and it was with great pride myself and other BB members saluted her as the National Anthem was played.

Myself and another officer took the decision on Saturday to go and join the Lying in State Queue which we joined at Midnight. We made the 10 mile journey in uniform and on foot along the Thames, and got to Westminster Hall at 12:35 PM on 18th Sept.

At 12:42 I stood at attention in front of the Catafalque, bowed my head and then saluted HM one final time, and thinking that the 12 and a half hour journey was nothing in comparison to her sense of 70 years of service to us all.

Ma’am – Duty done and rest forever in peace, as you lay down your crown before the King of Kings.
