Guarding the Tower (1974)

A red-coated guard at the Tower of London. Guards in this uniform are found at various royal palaces around England. Troops of them perform the famous “changing of the guard” ceremony for tourists at Buckingham Palace in London. Guards are sometimes confused with Yeoman Warders, also called “beefeaters,” but their function (and appearance) is quite different.
