Cadets take part in Beating Retreat 2018

13 June 2018

Staffordshire and West Midlands Corps of Drums along with members of Gwent and Powys Army Cadet Force took centre stage last week at The Household Division's Beating Retreat. 

The evening pageant of music and military precision drill is performed on Horse Guards Parade in front of the beautiful backdrop of St James’s Park. It takes place each year on the Wednesday and Thursday evenings preceding the Queen’s Birthday Parade, or “Trooping The Colour” as it is often called.
