Congratulations to Ex-MW Garry Burridge who recently joined the Yeoman Warders of the Tower of London. He will be carrying out a number of duties such as answering historical questions, helping visitors and having his photograph taken (a lot!)
He will also take part in various traditional ceremonies such as the Ceremony of the Keys, which has been conducted each night without fail for at least 700 years.
Before joining the Tower of London, Yeoman Warder Gary served on HMS Victory.
Most importantly, he was a MW rate until he left the RN. Outside of work, he is a keen motorbike enthusiast.
“Becoming a Yeoman Warder is a dream come true, I still have to pinch myself. I feel incredibly privileged and honoured to wear the uniform as a member of the Queen’s Bodyguard.”
“Entering the Tower of London is like stepping into another world – there’s nothing quite like it.”
