Most national armies have a corps or group of regiments that enjoy a good reputation. Today these will almost certainly be special forces, usually the commandos and parachute troops who receive (and encourage) so much attention from the media that they are regarded as superior military beings by a substantial part of their nations public. In the past a similarly inflated status was given to the troops who protected the persons and the property of emperors, kings and other monarchs, enjoying better pay and conditions than the common soldier and being praised for their magnificent appearance on parade. Perhaps the only men who have maintained their role as guardians of a royal household for over three centuries while building an envious reputation in war are Britains household troops, the Guards.
