1st Battalion Grenadier Guards Troop their Colour in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen on 8 June 2019. Taking part will be up to 1450 soldiers of the Household Division and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, along with up to 400 musicians from the Massed Bands. Over 240 soldiers from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards will line The Mall.

The ceremony of Trooping the Colour is believed to have been first performed during the reign of King Charles II (1660–1685). In 1748 it was decided that this parade would be used to mark the official birthday of The Sovereign. It became an annual event after George III became King in 1760. Guards taking part are drawn from the Regiments of The Sovereign’s Household Troops. It has become the practice for them to troop their Colours in turn.

Her Majesty The Queen has taken the salute at every parade since her accession to the throne in 1952 other than in 1955 when there was a national rail strike. Her Majesty‘s actual birthday is 21st April. The Sovereign’s official birthday is marked by the ceremony of Trooping the Colour, which this year falls on the 8th June 2019.

Music was recorded by the Grenadier Guards Band

Quick Troop 2019 - 'Twice the Man'

Lance Sergeant Ian ShepherdThe composer of 'Twice the Man' is Lance Sergeant Ian (Shep) Shepherd of The Band of Her Majesty’s Grenadier Guards. He is the principal tuba player, a position he has held for the past nine years. During his time as a member of this world-famous band, Ian has taken part in many high-profile State Ceremonial events.

In his capacity as staff arranger/composer for the Band, he has composed the 2019 Quick Troop March, entitled 'Twice The Man', so called to reflect the dual operational/ceremonial duties of the Grenadier Guards Regiment. This is the first time in the history of the Birthday Parade that the Quick Troop March has been composed by a serving rank and file Musician. The Quick Troop is unofficially regarded as the Massed Bands’ birthday gift to the Monarch.

Ian has, notably, also written fanfares to announce the arrival of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Important events such as the Royal Victorian Order service at Windsor Castle and other major services at London’s Westminster Abbey.

More recently, Ian has become principal tuba of the newly formed ensemble of excellence - The Guards Brass dectet which performs all over the United Kingdom, promoting British Army Music and has undertaken several BBC Radio 3 broadcasts as part of their ‘In Tune’ series of programmes.
