Armed Forces Day shared The Army in London - HQ London District's video. ...

Robins have been associated with Christmas for well over a century, their red breasts adding a seasonal glow to cards and decorations across the land. Just as our ceremonial soldiers cover guard duties 365 days of the year and are always on standby to react to aid the civil authority or deploy abroad to keep us safe, Robins sing all year round and despite their cute appearance, are aggressively territorial and are quick to drive away intruders. A common sight in Summer, our own red coated “robins” tend to hide their red “plumage” in the winter months, with only the Life Guards riding out in red cloaks. #advent #armyready
