UK1994-Part1-London : Yeoman Warder

This is one of the Yeoman Warder's of the tower - the official guards of the complex, who also serve as tour guides. Also known as "Beefeaters". These men are actually retired master sergeants from the army who have a perfect service record. It is a high honor to be accepted into the ranks of the Yeoman Warders, and the Warders and their families get to live in the Tower (they are these days the only permanent residents).
