Standing at attention

Soldiers of the Prince Alfred Guard standing at attention while the giant flag on the Donkin Reserve is being lowered. The reason 6 guys are needed is due to the size of the flag and the fact that it may not touch the ground when it comes down.  It was quite fun watching them grab the 12 meter x 8 meter flag and putting it back into the base of the flagpole.  The flagpole is the tallest in Africa while the flag is the biggest South African flag in the world.
