Jock Green-Armytage, the Canadian Chairman of Guards Polo Club, invited members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to Smith's Lawn today (Sunday) as part of the Club's inaugural Mounties Day. The RCMP Musical Ride had flown into the UK two days earlier in readiness to perform in the various Diamond Jubilee events over the next couple of weeks and two horses of the 32-strong Musical Ride put in a performance at Guards Polo Club. Constable Quilley, riding Hector, and Constable Lynn Wilms, riding Warren, led the teams onto the ground before the start of the Spring Tournament. Two pennant bearers, again in the magnificent scarlet uniforms of the RCMP, were also at the Club, welcoming guests to the Clubhouse.
Superintendant of the RCMP, Greg Peters, who had organised the horses and riders for this event, joined the Guards Polo Club officials and the members of the world renowned, Canadian tenors, who put on a impromptu performance in the Clubhouse before the matches, to present all the prizes after the game.
