The London Regiment Carol Service

Wednesday 9th December 2015

Just two days later The Mistress and I together with the Clerk and the Renter Warden were guests of the London Regiment at their carol service held in the chapel of St Peter Ad Vincula in the Tower of London with a reception in the Regimental museum afterwards. The surrounding of the Tower of London are particularly special and the Chapel of St Peter is full of history and a few gruesome reminders as buried beneath the chancel are the remains of Ann Boleyn and Jane Seymour who both lost their heads during the turmoil of Henry VIII’s frightening last years. We had a very enjoyable opportunity to socialize with the Regiment during the reception afterwards and finally attended the Ceremony of the Keys, the formal locking up of the Tower, as we made our way home
