oh, wow, i was surprised as your site opened and the policeman showed

a necessary evil though

good to know they are present
Bill Phillips: Sadly it is and has been for. number of years. However, you might find tomorrow's picture sheds a different light
Great shot! Funny with those huge hats and the music cards in front of them, they look like they don't have faces!
Bill Phillips: The traditional bearskin which were made from the fur of a Canadian Black bear. I don't know if they still are

The fully loaded policeman looks a little menacing, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Have a look at tomorrow's picture Ray.

No doubt the place is flooded with armed police..
Bill Phillips: Not noticeably. I saw two
OMG, Bill. Has there always been a fore-runner with a gun like that???
Bill Phillips: No. But I imagine it has been so for a number of years. You might find tomorrow's picture reassuring

Tradition
Bill Phillips: Good for the tourist trade which is about all we have left
J'aime les costumes de la garde. Le policier est impressionnant.
Bill Phillips: They look very smart and he looks very purposeful

There's a certain irony here. A big contingency of the army yet protected by one policeman (no doubt there are others, though) I would if you could bring down a terrorist with a trombone?
Bill Phillips: Perhaps you could with 76

This must have been impressive to see this. Too bad there has to be a "visual power" there....
I so love the red and you were on a great spot to see them marching by.
Bill Phillips: It was and it was quite some time since we last saw this

I sometimes wonder at all the stuff these armed police have hanging about their person. It must be bulky and uncomfortable and, you wouldn’t want to fall on your truncheon.
Bill Phillips: It makes one's eyes water just thinking about to Chad
it is a wonder they can see anything at all, Bill. the armed personnel does not miss much though i think.
Bill Phillips: They are also very hot and heavy things to wear. The armed guy is very much on the alert
The fellow with the weapon turns me off here.
Bill Phillips: That is the world we live in. The UK is a prime target for terrorists
I bet the tourists love this going on every day.
Bill Phillips: Oh indeed, as we did!
Some irony here Bill....Sadly.
Bill Phillips: Yes there is but tomorrow's picture made me feel somewhat cheered
Rambo springs to mind,but we need them.What away to live.
Bill Phillips: It is the world we live in I'm afraid.

They need a police dog with those big hats covering their eyes. I see the policeman is whistling so they can follow him, blindly.
Bill Phillips: It does amaze me that they can see let alone play wearing those things
A striking image, Bill! smile
The armed police are becoming a common site
Bill Phillips: It was a rarity not that many years go. At least they are still not routinely armed
An interesting contrast between the soldiers and the policeman!
Bill Phillips: It certainly is Tom
