Grand Ducal Guard
Formed in March 1945 the Company of Guards of 120 men were organised into three platoons. The Company mounted its first postwar guard at the Grand Ducal Palace on 12 April 1945. Though it was planned for the Guard to be at battalion strength, it never was larger than a company. From 1947 the company was referred to as the Corps de la Garde Grand-Ducale.
The Corps performed their final Changing of the Guard at the Palace on 29 January 1966 with the Guard being disbanded on 28 February 1966.
