Great shot and I wonder what regiment, scouts....?
LOVE the door...
Chris: This is the army cadet force of a public school in Bath Astrid (in the UK public schools are private, don't ask me why) and they are guarding the west door of the Abbey

A nice scene in front of the Abbey Bath! I love the smiling young boy.
Chris: He looks wonderfully fresh & naïve doesn't he Philine
They all look proud of themselves, Chris, especially the young lady who had just polished her boots. smile
Chris: Seeing a female soldier like this makes you realise just how different from the past culturally we've shifted over the years Ginnie

They look very proud of themselves. Good for them for doing something worthwhile with their lives and not hanging around texting all day along.
Chris: I can do little more than agree with your pearls of wisdom
You and Astrid are both on a military theme today Tiff.
Chris: How fun is that Chad

Ils me paraissent bien jeunes.
Chris: School cadets Martine
This is very nice with the camo colouration working a treat in matching up with the stonework. I can see only shoes and flags.
Chris: Thank you Mary
Are these Army Cadets by any chance, our son spent several years in that organisation and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Chris: Yes that is what they are Brian
