Second Sea Lord Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock tweeted that watching the event was a “highly emotional moment” and he was “so proud” of the Royal Navy.

The Royal Navy has been training for a month for the historic occasion. The change in personnel is to mark 2017 as the “Year of the Navy”, which former defence secretary Sir Michael Fallon called “the start of a new era of maritime power”.

  1. If this is the first time in 357 years is it going to take another 357 years to get a decent video of the performance this one is crap cannot see a thing in the shadow.

  2. What the flying f Sailors being brought to attention without the word HOOAAHH. Discrase to the uniform should use our own word of comand. Not armies we are the Senior Service we should use our own language. First time we guard the Queen. Prince Philip will not have been impressed. Once a sailor always a sailor.

  3. May as well go on point an do a couple of stags, seeing as we not got a fleet to put to sea in anymore. The real test is, if the put some live rounds in a clip and give it JACK on the gun, cos from my experience, JACK becomes secret agent 007, with a gun and rounds, heaven help us. Good to see the senior service put to use.

  4. Good to see "The Senior Service" taking up another duty, I don't think this is going to solve the issue with the lack of manning for our ships!
