My blog friend Denise, author of An English Girl Rambles, went home to England and has posted her photos from that visit. Her Post Part 10 was my favorite. The photos on that day were of the Queens Guard and all of the photos are worth visiting. Half way down the page is my favorite part, the Video she took of the Changing of the Queens Guard..... The photo above I grabbed from her video by hitting Print Screen, copy/paste in to Word doc and safe as a JPEG. Thanks for permission to use this Denise. Pop over to her post to see the video.
The Meandering Mind of Mad Snapper kicked in when I saw the guards with AK47 automatic rifles on their shoulders. WHAT? guns in the United Kingdom? Yes, Denise said. It started with 9/11 in the USA and all the terrorist's threats.
The President is guarded by Secret Service, their guns are not in sight but they are there. Guns and earpieces..
The White house is guarded with Secret Service like above and with Swat Teams below
