Old Soldiers Never Die...

Every year, on the second Sunday in May, retired Cavalry officers gather in Hyde Park. There they solemnly march past, with their furled umbrellas and their bowler hats, in remembrance of their lost comrades whose fate was not to gently fade away. But for the gleaming medals and the pervading sadness the event might be mistaken for a rather posh English garden party. Photographed in 2001 for my book, "Being English"
