What Is An Honour Guard?

Regalia For An Honourable Calling

An honour guard, or ceremonial guard, is a ceremonial unit, usually military in nature and composed of volunteers who are carefully screened for their physical ability and dexterity. Only those persons who are highly motivated and maintain exceptionally high standards of appearance and conduct and show aptitude for ceremonial duty are likely to be considered.

A primary role for honour guards is to provide funeral honors for fallen comrades and to guard national monuments. An honour guard may also serve as the "guardians of the colours" by displaying and escorting the national flag on ceremonial occasions at official state functions. Finally, honour guards usually provide detachments for review by visiting heads of state.

Stokes provides regalia for this “honourable” calling and will help you to customize what you need for your occasion.
