A Salute to British Veterans
Over the centuries The Royal Hospital Chelsea - not far from where I live- has served as a retirement community for thousands of retired soldiers, this year even allowing a few women to join. In-Pensioners gather for meals, worship, and most of all companionship in their recognizable RED jackets looking very dapper if I must say so myself! Our guide for the tour was a charming chap. He captivated us with his entertaining stories and honestly, at one point I was crying from laughter. I'll tell you about the "multiplying scooters and their reckless drivers" one day.
And, as usual, we end our exhausting tour at a nearby pub....lunch anyone?
