Michael Jackson - Thriller - HM The Queen - Coldstream Guards - - Rehearsal
Oldest regiment in the Regular Army in continuous active service, originating in Coldstream, Scotland in 1650 when "General George Monck" founded the regiment. It is one of two regiments of the Household Division that can trace its lineage to the New Model Army, the other being the Blues and Royals (Royal Horse Guards and 1st Dragoons).
The grouping of buttons on the tunic is a common way to distinguish between the regiments of Foot Guards. Coldstream buttons are arranged in pairs, and a star of the garter is marked on their brassware.
