Limited Edition Drum Major Brooch
Picture the iconic annual ceremony of Trooping the Colour on Horseguards Parade in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and most of the Royal Family. The most impressive part of this birthday present from her personal troops is when the 300 Musicians of the Massed Bands march past the Sovereign in slow and quick time.
The bands are led by the five Drum Majors in full state dress. When you are appointed Drum Major in the Guards you are made a personal drummer to the Sovereign which is why they wear the uniform of the Royal Household. That uniform is adorned with a scarlet apron which is held in place by a beautiful brooch.
The Senior Drum Major has the honour of wearing a brooch depicting the Divisional Badge of the Guards with the Latin motto Septem Juncta in Uno (Seven joined in one), representing the seven regiments who have the honour of guarding the Queen.
Only one man in the whole of the Guards Division has the distinction of wearing this beautiful brooch. This is one of a limited-edition (10) commissioned by The Guards Museum. Each badge is boxed and comes with an authenticating certificate.
