Welcome to Grenadier Guards Notts

The Grenadier Guards is a modern, forward-thinking infantry regiment, despite being one of the oldest regiments in the British Army and the most senior of the five Regiments of Foot Guards.

The Regiment, as the Royal Regiment of Foot Guards, was formed in 1656 by King Charles the Second, who was then in exile in Bruges, Flanders.

The Grenadier Guards Regimental Association was formed in 1913, and currently consists of about 6000 members amongst 46 branches. The President of the Association is Colonel Euan Houstoun, OBE and he is supported by Major(Retired) Andy Green, the General Secretary, and LSgt Jay Ellingham, the Association NCO. The Association Headquarters helps organise Regimental Remembrance Day in May each year which consists of a Memorial Service in the Guards Chapel, Wellington Barracks and a wreath laying ceremony at the Guards Memorial on Horse Guards Parade. In addition in the early Summer they help organise Grenadier Day

It was known as the First Guards later becoming the First Regiment of Foot Guards and now bears the title "The First or Grenadier Regiment of Foot Guards" in honour or the defeat of the Grenadiers of the French Imperial Guards at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
It is the only Regiment in the British Army that has directly gained it's title from the part it played in action

Residential Ssecurity Guards and Forces


The British Army, is renown for the perfect execution of its function throughout the world. You only have to look at one aspect of the British way to deal with anything that seeks to attack its shores, from inside or out to have an idea of inherent power of the United Kingdom.

For the larger part of the Metropolitan Police force, do not carry armed weapons, one could say that this is largely because the vast majority of UK residents also do not carry or have access, legal or otherwise to fire arms. While this may be true for many other countries, it is notable for the most part the United Kingdom police force does not need to have and carry fire arms in order to keep order.

In some countries, in certain districts, they live in gated communities, only in a handful of areas in the United Kingdom do some areas have 24 residential security guards , that are on constant patrol throughout the day and night. For even the most security conscience home owners in the UK this is not a necessity. You may be able to deduct from this that United Kingdom residents are well behaved or do not respond violent or lethal force or the threat of lethal force is not prevalent in the policing of the country. Whether you would insist that the crown prosecution service or prison service has some relevance to the successful policing of the country is another argument.

For most homes in central London and Home Counties, private residential security guards are not needed to assist home owners in feeling safe in their homes. While you may argue that burglary is on the increase and the sale of intruder alarms will increase as more home owners feel that they need to make an investment in order keep their belongings safe. The threat of violent attacks in the home from the large part is virtually non existence

The answer lies in the training of this particular force and indeed every force, training and keeping order.
