Shameful behaviour, if I were his CSM his feet wouldn't touch the ground, remove him from his regiment..flogging would be too good for this guy. Disgrace how we have fallen in this country.

I agree with you Oxton Hill, he should get his punishment...whatever it results in.
I still find it amusing , probably because it's something we have not seen before.

On the other hand, what should be the outcome of this behaviour, of which I don't find amusing. Surely they too should be held to account?

If I replied what I think about those police officers I'd probably be censored & thrown off the forum.

What I think is, for what it's worth
Is that the guard one is staged and the cop one is real

I should think that a lot of us who were in the forces did something outlandish, oh yes, and we took our nourishment for doing it. One bored guardsman or what? Seems odd that's there have been no statements or leaks since. Could be a photoshop set up looking at the stills the guardsman looks a bit action manish I think.

Could well be Helles. Here is another more detailed version. Definitely a set up. It would appear that the only one posted on youtube is this one captured by Andy Richards. Maybe a charity raising gimmick.

Personally I think its a con, his drill is too poor to be a guardsman; obviously I could be wrong.I agree with Bandy with having taken the shilling and done some rediculous things a line would definately been drawn at doing something like this on official duty.

having been posted with the guards at various times, it is way too poor to be a real guardsman, that box if it is where i think it is is not patrolled 24hrs, well it never used to be, but its a long time since i was there, if so it is possible someone dressed as one spoofed this,

tried to edit the post but left it too late, cos i thought initially it may have been round the back of clarence house where the brickwork is similiar, but as they pan out its buck house, so last bit about not guarded is wrong, although the boxes at buck arent all 24hr, but its liek letter from god to get in there lol
