No mention of the Coldstream Guards

I have just read the article regarding the presentation of berets and cap stars to the Northumberland CE Academy cadets, Ashington, newly formed Coldstream Guards cadets by Brigadier Bibby (News Post Leader, May 8).

Being the chairman of The Coldstream Guards Association in Ashington, I was present at this ceremony, and first class it was.

Brigadier Bibby himself is an ex-Coldstream Guards officer and I am sure he would have loved to have had the name of the regiment mentioned in the article, this being his own regiment and also a regiment formed in the local area.
