Trooping the Colour

Rehearsal of the 'Trooping the Colour' parade in London, where the colours of a specific regiment of the British armed forces are displayed (front right). Originally conducted so that soldiers could recognize their respective regiment colours, since 1805 the parade has been used to commemorate the Queen's official birthday.

I never really saw the fuss about parades, but watching this one, even if only the rehearsal, I have to say its pretty impressive.
