Additional Details:
The detachment of Household Cavalry which forms the King's Guard for the day at Whitehall is inspected daily at 4 o'clock by the senior officer, all men not actually on sentry duty being paraded. After this ceremony is completed and the men dismissed to their quarters, the horse-sentry boxes are closed, and from thence until 10 o'clock next day mounted sentries are not posed.
