UK - Ascot - Coldstream Guards on veterans charity duty
Formally-dressed gentlemen donate coins to soldiers from the Coldstream Guards (from nearby Windsor barracks and deploying to Afghanistan later this year)
during the annual Royal Ascot horseracing festival in Berkshire, England. Royal Ascot is one of Europe's most famous race meetings, and dates back to 1711. Queen Elizabeth and various members of the British Royal Family attend. Held every June, it's one of the main dates on the English sporting calendar and summer social season. Over 300,000 people make the annual visit to Berkshire during Royal Ascot week, making this Europe’s best-attended race meeting with over £3m prize money to be won.
