UK1994-Part1-London : Buckingham Palace Guard

A member of the royal guard unit currently stationed at the palace. This is one of two places where you can see "the changing of the guard".These are real combat units who rotate through the role of guarding the queen and her home. While on duty, they live in Wellington Barracks, around the corner. In later years (but not in 1994), my in-laws owned a flat behind Wellington Barracks.
