The Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band perform for the Chelsea Pensioners

31st October 2018

The Chelsea Pensioners enjoyed a musical performance at the Royal Hospital Chelsea today as The Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment performed a mini concert in Figure Court.

The band played a range of military favourites including The Dambusters March and The Great Escape, to the delight of the watching Chelsea Pensioners and visitors to the Royal Hospital.

Chelsea Pensioner, Michael called it a marvellous performancing, saying "What a pleasure it is to hear military music being performed right here at the Royal Hospital, especially on a lovely autumn day such as this".

The concert was arranged by The Royal Gibraltar Regiment, who were in London for their annual camp. For further images, view our gallery below.
