Pikemen and Musketeers Exposed for U3A

The speaker at the Chess Valley U3A (University of the Third Age) meeting on Thursday 8 March 2012 is John Skinner, who will talk about the Lord Mayor’s Bodyguard. It is on at Broadway Baptist Church, Chesham at 2pm.

The Lord Mayor isn’t Boris who is only the Mayor of London. The Pikemen and Musketeers body was founded in 1925 as the guard to the Lord Mayor of the City of London and is part of the Honourable Artillery Company, of which HM The Queen is the Hon Captain General. The Pikemen and Musketeers parade around 60 times per year adding colour to banquets, dinners and State occasions.
