The Queen’s Colour Squadron is the Royal Air Force’s dedicated ceremonial unit, responsible for representing the Royal Air Force at both state and national ceremonial occasions; providing Guards of Honour for the Royal Family, as well as heads of state, dignitaries and other VIPs.
The Squadron’s ceremonial duties also include mounting The Queen’s Guard on behalf of the Royal Air Force at the London Palaces and Windsor Castle.
The Queen’s Colour Squadron is renowned for its Continuity Drill Displays and has thrilled audiences around the world including Germany, Poland, Holland, Switzerland, Canada, Australia and the United States of America.
In 2017 the Squadron introduced LED Lights into the Continuity Drill Displays, allowing the creation of bespoke shapes and routines to add emphasis to the drill movements and an overpowering effect to the routine.
