THE LIFE GUARDS REGIMENTAL COLLECT

O Ever-living God, King of Kings, in whose service we put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation, grant we beseech thee that The Life Guards may be faithful unto death, and at last receive the crown of life from Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

(Formed in April 1922 from: The 1st Life Guards, The 2nd Life Guards and took their present title in June 1928)
