Ceremonial

When not on combat operations the Grenadier Guards have the distinction of guarding the royal palaces. Known universally for the bear skins and red tunics we wear, it can initially be an overwhelming experience to find yourself in front of Buckingham palace surrounded by thousands of tourists. The shock does quickly wear off our more senior soldiers stand tall, resplendent in uniform, giving the prettiest young ladies a cheeky wink as they saunter past.
