Did you know that on the 16th September 1485, following his victory at the Battle of Bosworth, the Yeoman of the Guard, the bodyguard of the English Crown we know as Beefeaters, were established this day by King Henry VII.

Apart from talking to tourists and keeping the Tower ravens in check the Yeoman of the Guard are also the keepers of the Queens Keys.

My blog on the role of the Yeoman of the Guard and there part in the Ceremony of the Queens Keys can be read on my website.
