About the Author

Christopher Joll, a former officer in The Life Guards, is now an author and event director, and Anthony Weldon is a former Irish Guards officer turned author and publisher. The two of them have combined forces to produce a riveting account of characters who served in the Household Cavalry and the Foot Guards since 1660, drawing on their extensive experience of both arms of the sovereign's Household troops.
