Does anyone ever recall actually Jack doing Buck House guard, if so, when ?
I've only seen us doing Whitehall route manning, and the gun carriage hauling (and that was many years ago), but never manning the post at the Palace.
I had posed a question to the Daily Mail Questions once, but never received an answer.
Any older, I mean more experienced, exJacks out there have any recollection ?
Found this link from 2000:

Also the RN gets a mention for State Funerals in this link:
