Guidon Party, 1990

On the 30th June 1990 the Royal Hussars received a new guidon. The Guidon Party consists of a Warrant Officer carrying the guidon escorted by two sergeants and accompanied by an junior officer. They are in no. 1 dress with the crimson trousers of the 11th Hussars. The WO has no sword although he would normally carry one on parade. The officer's sword scabbard is fixed to slings that attach to a hidden belt beneath his tunic. The sergeants have swords attached to a visible white waistbelt.
