Pride of Sikh among bearskins on parade

A SIKH Coldstream Guardsman, the first to wear a turban on parade during Trooping the Colour, says he hopes it will be seen as a “change in history”.

Guardsman Charanpreet Singh Lall will be among more than 1,000 soldiers taking part in the Queen’s birthday parade in Horse Guards Parade, London, today.

The 22-year-old, from Leicester, will wear a black turban instead of the Guards’ traditional bearskin.

He said: “I hope that people will look at it as a new change in history.

“I hope that more people like me, not just Sikhs, but people from other religions and backgrounds, will be encouraged to join the Army.”
