Regiment of Silly Walks

I was amused by the story of the Grenadier Guard doing a silly walk outside Buckingham Palace this week.

Apparently the guardsman is facing an investigation for "breaching military discipline".

Well, I know that the Brigade of Guards have a reputation to uphold, and standing guard outside Buckingham Palace is serious business, but come on, let's have a sense of humour about it.

He wasn't making obscene gestures, he wasn't saying anything rude, he was just having a bit of fun during his working day, and he no doubt made a few people smile too.

Let's hope he doesn't get too much of a hard time over it - maybe he could start a trend, and we can have the Regiment of Silly Walks at next year's Edinburgh Military Tattoo!!
