The oldest regiment in the Regular Army in continuous active service, originating in Coldstream, Scotland in 1650 when General George Monck founded the regiment. It is one of two regiments of the Household Division that can trace its lineage to the New Model Army, the other being the Blues and Royals (Royal Horse Guards and 1st Dragoons).
During the Crimean War, The Coldstream Regiment started with this pattern during the battle of Alma. But was found unsuitable for wear in engagements and the forage cap worn invariably by troops at Inkerman, Sevastopol / remainder of campaign. On their return, four men of the regiment were awarded the newly instituted Victoria Cross.
The regiment received its current name, The Coldstream Guards, in 1855.

The 63rd Regiment of Foot, was a British Army regiment in the 18th and 19th centuries. During the 19th century they acquired the nickname 'The Bloodsuckers.' This supposedly derived from the resemblance of a regimental emblem, the Fleur-de-lys, to a tropical insect.
As part of the Childers Reforms, the 63rd and the 96th Regiments of Foot amalgamated in 1881 to form The Manchester Regiment. The lineage of the 63rd is continued today by the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment (King's Lancashire and Border).
