I am guessing stamping his foot is the only warning they give.

Would be cool if they had 2 rifles. One with blanks, and one with M193. I'd love to see the idiots shit themselves when the blanks crack.

Whoever attempted to blur out the guard's face sure did a shitty job of it.

From wiki, so take it for what it's worth:

Sentries receive instruction on how to eliminate nuisance or any suggestion of threat from members of the public. There is a protocol they follow which begins with "stamping" (coming to attention sharply). He will also shout: "Stand back from the Queen's Guard" or similar. If this does not eliminate the nuisance or threat he will repeat the stamp and shout again. If the nuisance or threat still does not cease the sentry will assume the position of "port arms" whereby he points his rifle at the source of the interference with his duties. If these warnings are not heeded the sentry then has the choice of detaining the person(s) himself or pressing the button in his sentry box to summon assistance.

So there's no "and then he shoots the blighter" level? Or does that fall under the "detaining" heading?

The button in the sentry box should send an electrical current through the fence.

"I warned you to stay off the fence"

I like how everyone started laughing when he was pointing his rifle at them and telling them for a 3rd/4th time to get off the fence.

M193?



The M193 cartridge is a center-fire cartridge with a 55-grain, gilded metal-jacketed, lead alloy core bullet. The M193 round is the standard cartridge for field use with the M16A1 rifle and has no identifying marks.

And then pointed his gun from the hip.

Seriously could they be any less threatening.

M193?

A little faster than your SS109 and a wee bit lighter.

Went to Mayport to take a tour of the Hermes about 6 months before Argentina took the Falklands. The few sailors standing on the dock had no weapons but one was carrying a big wrench.

Somewhat like the Tomb Guards at Arlington, they seem to take their duty seriously.

We always carry live ammo when guarding the royal palaces.

Uniformed soldiers guard the perimeter while plain clothes security police guard the interior.

I asked one of the Danish guards at Amalienborg Palace if he had ammo in his magazine, to which he replied, in his Danish accent "yes". 10 round mags in their rifles, but 10 rounds can still do some damage.

Usually ceremonial uniform, but during certain hours we wear camo.

In wintertime I usually carry an extra 30 round mag in my coat pocket, but I can't in the summer uniform.

I don't know, but it seems like being a "palace guard" is almost like a punishment. Repeatedly fuck up in your unit? Well sorry, enjoy your stent as a a palace guard.

Goofy assed hat, goofy assed drill movements, fucked with by the public, no ammo. Sounds horrible to me.

Assuming the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph aren't completely making things up, they are each issued six rounds.

I don't know if anyone has pointed it out to him, but he has a pokey bit on the end of his rifle that I believe would be excellent in getting an individual off of a fence.
