Beat the retreat @ Waterloo Place

So I couldn't blag tickets to the St Pauls Scott Memorial last Thursday, but did bunk the afternoon off of work to see the Royal Marines Beat the Retreat down at Waterloo Place right in front of the Scott Memorial statue, which was quite a sight to behold. It was nice to see lots of people (most of whom were in their finery after the St Pauls service) gathering to pay tribute to the Captain. Everyone was so friendly, Suzi counted 3 Polar Medals, and then we went to the pub.

Yes that man with the drum is wearing a tiger.

And at the perfect moment as the band finished, this happened.


  1. It was a wonderful afternoon.

    1. I know you are just sat there thinking of polar medals...
