Royal Body Guards

Thank you

The Royal Body Guards are celebrating their golden jubilee today. The banner, featuring RBG’s famous “Gho Company”, congratulates and thanks the commandant, officers and all ranks of the RBG, past and present, for fifty years of dedicated service to the tsa-wa-sum.

RBG’s announcement on this important day follows:

Royal Body Guards was raised on 27th December 1960 to undertake the security responsibilities of His Majesty the Third King. It then just consisted of one Company of 120 men including officers under the Command of 2nd Lt. Tshering Nidup who was later promoted to the rank of Colonel and had the Distinction of being the first Commandant of Royal Body Guards.

Since then RBG grew in numbers and relevance to take up very important assignments in the service of Tsa-Wa-Sum. Today RBG is being commanded by Major General Dhendup Tshering DW, DT under whose leadership RBG promises to make steady progress.

On this auspicious occasion of our 50 years service; officers, men and civilian employees of RBG offer our solemn pledge to serve with loyalty and dedication.

  1. Dear OL,
    From the very beginning of year 2007, i was having zero knowledge about democracy and i have voted DPT without having any knowledge about Democracy. Now, with the passage of time, i am getting idea about Democracy; the role of OL and fucntionality of ruling part. But by the year 2013 for next elections, there will no much difference in winning parliament seats since many people had understood and experience whom to give a vote. in the beginning i was doubting and i just voted it without second thought. and i have seen the Ol is actively playing significant role and one such is taking governemtn to court in which i saw that 99% of total right lies OL and though i had voted DPT, i as a concerned citizen have strong feeling that our Supreme Court will give authetic, equity and justice verdict without affecting both OL and government.
    I have one question la
    Will OL can be prime minister if he win maximum seats in the next election, since prime minster will be pick up from maximum seats wiining party?

  2. In contrast to what is required, the RBG Company presented at the Changlimithang on the 103rd National Day celebration were much smaller in physical size compared to RBP and RBA.

    It seems the selection of RBG is done on purpose. Major Gen. Dhendup Tshering did not wish to face up into the sky while commanding to his jokers.
