The Irish Guards receive flowers as button holes to commemorate the dead.
Item title reads: "Erin for ever! Striking scenes at St. Patrick's day parade of the Irish Guards. Fallen comrades remembered at the Guards' Memorial."
M/S of officers of the Irish Guards wearing busbies prepare the baskets containing small flowers, at a table. An officer in full dress with feathered hat takes a basket. All officers wear medals, as they take a salute and pass among the ranks of guards and hand each one a flower. The soldiers pin them to their uniforms, followed by a side angle of the guards at attention, with an Irish wolfhound, the mascot, and its master, in the foreground. The mascot looks forlorn, but the guards wave their busbies in a three cheer salute.
Note: it's not clear what sort of flower is given.
