The Irish Guards marching along The Mall in London to Horse Guards Parade for The Colonel's Review - the second full dress rehearsal for Trooping The Colour.

At the front is the battalion's mascot, an Irish wolfhound called Conmael. The Irish Guards are allowed to have their mascot lead them in parade. Behind are the military band, the fifes and drums and the pipers who are playing in this clip.

The tunes played here are all Irish. The first is Kelly the Boy from Killane; at 0:36 it changes to The Minstrel Boy; at 1:11 The Sash; and at 1:47 The Wearing of the Green. You can research the histories of all these tunes on Wikipedia.
