Yeoman Warder Bill Callaghan

Watch Yeoman, Bill Callaghan, an ex-Regimental Sergeant Major, giving a brilliantly funny history lesson to a group of tourists. Part two is the funniest, but it's worth watching the whole thing.

I wish all history lessons would be so memorable.

I just found out that you can book Bill Callaghan for after-dinner speeches and auctioneering. I wonder if he'd also do master of ceremonies at a wedding - he'd be great.

The Yeomen Warders of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London, and Members of the Sovereign's Body Guard of the Yeoman Guard Extraordinary, commonly known as Beefeaters, are ceremonial guardians of the Tower of London. In principle they are responsible for looking after any prisoners at the Tower and safeguarding the British crown jewels, but in practice they act as tour guides and are a tourist attraction in their own right.

The videos are recorded by Jerry and Judy Clark.
