Last weekend on the date of the actual Trooping in London, I set up a toy soldier display of the Trooping of the Colour in the Commons Room at the Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh. This event was sponsored by Britsburgh ( and the English Nationality Room.
This link- link shows pictures from the event.
The display was 12' long and include over 700 figures. There also was a photo op with a cut out of the Queen as she looked over the display.

Thanks to everyone for their comments! The display was very well received by the public. Lots of selfies with HM and her troops.
