The Trooping the Colour takes place on the second Saturday in June at Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall in London.

What is the Trooping the Colour?

The official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II is marked each year by a military parade and march-past, known as Trooping the Colour (Carrying of the Flag). The official name is “the Queen’s Birthday Parade”.

On 09/06/2018 your mission will be to release at sunset a book with any colour in the title or author’s name. You can also use the word Trooping to link to the theme.

ETA you can also use Birthday, flag or Queen references or pictures on the cover.


Good one :-)


Good one :-)

I thought it gave us lots of scope!


I just picked one out. Will release it on time but report late as we are on the road then.


Trooping the Colour (Carrying of the Flag). The official name is “the Queen’s Birthday Parade”.

How about the words (or pix?) flag or birthday too? Would you allow them?

Yes why not!



The WHITE Horse of Zennor and other stories by Michael Morpurgo is sitting on a rocking horse ride.
