The Mounties on Guard
Yesterday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police provided the mounted guard on Whitehall.
I doubt, I’ll ever see this again in my lifetime. There is a photo gallery here from the Toronto Star.
I wonder how many of the tourists snapping away didn’t realise that it was Canadians on guard. Surely MP on the saddle-cloth was a giveaway, something was different.
Surorisingly, the event doesn’t seem to have been reported in the television news. I found out from yesterday’s copy of The Times.
