Formed in 1650, Coldstream are famous for being the oldest regiment in the British Army in continuous service. Recruits complete the six month Combat Infantryâs Course at the Infantry Centre, Catterick. Once they become Guardsmen they go to 7 Company based at Wellington Barracks, London, before being posted to the Battalion at Windsor. They have been deployed to Afghanistan as well as completed exercises in Belize and Kenya. They have also had the opportunity to go out to Zambia and help train soldiers in the Zambian Army. In 2017 they were streetliners for the Queenâs Birthday Parade while the Irish Guards trooped their colour. Many of the soldiers also went to the Falklands on a three month exercise at the beginning of the year. A select fewÂ embarked on HMS Ocean in Gibraltar to sail to the Caribbean on Operation Rumen to help with humanitarian aid and disaster relief in the Caribbean following hurricaneÂ Irma.Â As well as this, soldiers have taken part in sailing trips around the world and the football team has been on many tours across Europe.
