Welcome to the official website of the Coldstream Guards. The Coldstream Guards was founded in 1650 as Monck’s Regiment of Foot and was part of Cromwell’s New Model Army. It became known as the Coldstream Guards in 1670, on the death of General Monck, its first Colonel. It is the oldest regiment in continuous existence in today’s modern British Army. Its motto is “Second to None” or “Nulli Secundus”.
The Regiment consists of a Regimental Headquarters, the 1st Battalion (a war-fighting light role infantry battalion), Number 7 Company (a ceremonial company), the Regimental Band (a world famous marching band), and the Regimental Association (the veterans organisation). The Coldstream Guards has been at the forefront of recent British military operations serving in both Iraq (2005) and in Afghanistan (2007, 2009-10 and 2014).
