Pix Of The Day – Ceremonial Guards March on Parliament Hill

The Ceremonial Guard is an ad hoc military unit in the Canadian Forces with elements drawn from two Primary Reserve (militia) regiments of Foot Guards: The Governor General’s Foot Guards from Ottawa and the Canadian Grenadier Guards from Montreal. Every summer, the Ceremonial Guard performs the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill and posts sentries at Rideau Hall, the residence of the Governor General of Canada, and as of the summer of 2007, the National War Memorial.

Uniforms are styled after the Queen’s Guard.
