Colour Ceremony.

The Colour Ceremony is traditionally commenced before the major public battle at a reenactment. Its function then, durign the American Revolution, and now is to parade the colours before the troops. It is customary to do this because the King's Colour (Union Jack with out the red bar in the field of white) is the representation of the King during times of  Foreign Wars. Therefore, it is a sign of respect. The Colour Ceremony usually involves the men coming to Present. The Colours, a detachement of music and a Guard of Grenadiers wil slow march past the army. This is actually the presentation of the colours, there is more preceding the colours passing and also some ceremonies folowing.
