    COLONIAL TROOPS AT TROOPING THE COLOUR 1910-1920. This film actually records the King's Birthday Parade of 1919, which was held in Hyde Park, London. The Massed Bands of the Foot Guards and Corps of Drums shown was the largest ever seen, with almost 570 participants (note the 9 or 10 Drum Majors leading them). The bands were in ceremonial dress, but the troops were not, they being in service khaki. So the 'Colonial Troops' were in fact from the Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards. This 'Troop' was also the only one to have had six Foot Guards' regiments in attendance, with the Sixth, or Machine Gun Regiment of Foot Guards marching past to their own regimental slow and quick marches.
