|Thu Apr 9th||Being a Yeoman Warder|
Our speaker John Keohane, was Chief Yeoman Warder, the most senior member of the Sovereign’s Bodyguard based at the Tower of London, and often referred to by visitors as “Beefeaters.” One ceremonial role of the Chief Yeoman Warder involves the nightly closing down ceremony of the Tower known as the Ceremony of the Keys.
|Thu May 14th||Annual General Meeting|
To include a talk entitled…………
