Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Brigade of Guards (sometimes, and less formally, known as the Guards Brigade) is a historical elite unit of the British Army, which has existed sporadically since the 17th century. Its motto is Honi soit qui mal y pense (Old French), "Shamed be whoever thinks poorly of it"), which is also the motto of the Order of the Garter. The Brigade of Guards was formally reformed on July 14, 1948 as the administrative depot for the regiments of foot guards, in line with the rest of the infantry. In line with the reforms of the army, it was renamed as the Guards Division on July 1, 1968.show more
