In all events the Lord-Lieutenant will wear the uniform of Lord-Lieutenant and take precedence of all those attending, including Ministers of the Crown.
A Lord-Lieutenant is entitled to inspect and to take salute at a parade of his County Territorial and Army Volunteer Reserve units in any county where they may be stationed. It is usual, as an act of courtesy, to notify his intention to the Lord-Lieutenant of the county to be visited.
When the Lord-Lieutenant has been expressly instructed to deputise for the Sovereign, for instance when Her Majesty has instructed the Lord-Lieutenant to present colours on Her behalf, he should be received with a Royal salute and the National Anthem should be played.
On all other occasions, the Lord-Lieutenant should be saluted by troops in his capacity as military commander, that is to say, he should be received with a general salute and by the band playing the first part of a slow march, not the National Anthem.
When a regiment parades for the purposes of receiving the equivalent of the freedom of a city or borough, it is right to make the Lord Mayor or Mayor of the city or borough make the presentation and take the salute.
