That's a great exemplar in irony, Bob. I love the title (after Googling it; my school was so good, it was approved). The contrast in expressions between the two guards is a joy; the resolutely disconnected, traditional stance of the horseguard (don't know my regiments, I'm afraid), compared with the constantly alert, fully engaged nature of his counterpart. An eloquent observation of a sad old world. Allan

A good question, in view of the recent inquest into PC Keith Palmer's death.

I have it on good authority that they hate marching in those cavalry boots.

More an example of a sad new world I think.

Great juxtaposition of ceremony and practicality. Glad to see that both have a shine on their boots. It is nice to see that some things don't change.

I like the contrast between the Guardsman with a sword and the guard with the assault rifle. Great candid image.
