The guard on duty in his snow-covered hut this morning:
I think he is from the 1st Battalion, Coldstream Guards, normally stationed at Victoria Barracks (just down the road past the Guildhall and round the corner towards Ascot).
Thanks to t for telling me that this is a Grenadier Guardsman. I really need to learn the button arrangements, as the white plume is not easily visible here (looks more like snowflakes falling).
This reminds me I have dozens of pictures of guards that I should make time to sort and post online …
