If you visit the National Army Museum on the 29th June then you'll be able to hear a performance by the Band of the Royal Yeomanry at 1 PM and 3 PM.

The Band of the Royal Yeomanry was formed in 1961 by amalgamating the much older Inns of Court Regiment (1548) and City of London Yeomanry (1901).

The Inns of Court Regiment was famously known as 'The Devil’s Own' -- a nickname given to them by George III when he watched them at a Royal Review in 1803. The City of London Yeomanry's nickname was 'The Rough Riders', given to them by Colonel Theodore Roosevelt during the Spanish-American War of 1898.

As a result of a major reorganisation of the Territorial Army in 1967, the amalgamated unit’s band became that of The Royal Yeomanry. However, it maintained the ceremonial uniform and, in its title, the style ‘Inns of Court & City Yeomanry’. The band is currently based at Holderness House in the City of London.

Many of the band's current musicians are former members of the Household Division and other Regular Army bands.
