Royal Marine Band and RAF contingeant muster at Talafalgar Square. The 1.42 miles-long Coronation Procession was formed of eight groups from the Household Division, Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force and Commonwealth, together with 19 bands. Led by the Household Cavalry Mounted Band and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, the route was the reverse of the initial Procession to the Abbey, taking in Parliament Square, Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Admiralty Arch, and The Mall. More than 5,000 personnel took part, including 4,000 people in the procession itself, 1,000 street-liners, 200 members of the Guard of Honour and 200 people carrying the Standards, Colours, Guidons and Truncheon. The Procession Group bands played up to eight marches, depending on their position in the Procession, before reducing to a drumbeat as they processed into position in the Buckingham Palace Garden for the Royal Salute.
