My collection of (Canadian) Guards uniforms

Recommended Posts

Below is a display I set up at the annual convention of the Company of Military Historians. It consists of uniforms of the disbanded Canadian Guards, the Governor General's Foot Guards (my former regiment), the Grenadier Guards and the Governor General's Horse Guards. On the left side is a small TV playing a 20 minute video of the 1974 Changing of the Guard in Ottawa (I was a Platoon Cmdr that year) on the right is a laptop that ran a slide show of all of the items, complete with closeups and captions. The small display case in the middle holds cap badges and buckles to the GGFG.

Very nice display!

How about the thread with the various types of Guards insignia ?

Sounds like a great idea!
