Simon Doughty sheds light on life in the iconic Household Division and discusses how the act of serving Crown and Country has evolved over the last 50 years.

In recent decades, the Household Division has been at the heart of almost every major operation conducted by the British Army. Between deployments to the Falklands, Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan, members of the Household Division have also played an enduring role in national life, conducting ceremonial duties on behalf of the monarch.

In this talk, Simon Doughty will focus on the experiences of those soldiers who have served in the Household Division since 1969, revealing what it was like to serve during a period of significant social and geostrategic change.
