There is what they were doing to be considered:
Two soldiers serving in the regiment that conducts ceremonial duties for the Queen carried out a string of armed robberies across south London, a court has heard.
Grenadier Guards Kristopher James-Merrill, 20, and Dillon Sharpe, 23, are alleged to have raided seven convenience stores with their friend Marlon Wright, 25, between July 24 and 26 2018.
Their regiment is one of the most senior in the British Army with soldiers recognised by the scarlet tunic and bearskin uniforms they wear while on ceremonial duty at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
They’re supposed to be aiding Cabinet Ministers in the bushes of course. But then there’s also the efficacy:
But four of the attempted raids failed and Sharpe left empty handed after workers fought back.
If a couple of squaddies can’t hold up a corner shop then do we actually want them as squaddies?
