Military representatives from all over the Empire took part in the Grand Parade to celebrate sixty years of Queen Victoria's reign in London. The members of the 1st Volunteer Battalion came from towns and villages in Breconshire. From 1,000 men serving in the Battalion at the time, only the 22 smartest soldiers were selected. The men lined the route near Westminster Bridge for eight hours and the procession itself took two and a half hours to pass. This picture was photographed by Charles & Bell, Brecon.
