King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery mark accession anniversary

February 10, 2014

According to the British Army:

Soldiers around the UK have today fired Royal Gun Salutes to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s accessions to the throne in 1952.

The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery fired a 41 Royal Gun Salute at noon in London’s Hyde Park.
Each of the six First World War era 13 pounder guns was drawn by six immaculately turned-out colour-matched horses. They galloped down the Park, came to a halt, unhooked and then awaited the stroke of noon when each gun fired a blank cartridge at ten second intervals.
