I would hate to be around this taylor with his habit of putting his hands in other peoples pockets!

Apparently that tailor is a Lance Sergeant as well being the garrison stitch. Don't they have a height requirement in the Guards anymore?

If he is a Lance Sergeant why is he parading in civvys ?
I don't know chapter and verse but Bn Master Tailors wear suits day to day when not preforming other military duties like Guard commander, piquet sgt and that sort of stuff, also his cane has markings on for when he's fitting people.

They called him L/Sgt throughout the article, where is the difficulty or did I miss something?
I don't know if this is the same with other Regiments with the Household Division, but the Master Tailor is classed as part of the Bn Staff and as such he is addressed as sir regardless of what rank he holds.

What rank do you have to be, to become a Master Tailor?

Other than losing teeth and/or breaking nose, the other main outcome of fainting at attention is a bilateral fracture of the mandible in the condylar area, also known as a bucket handle fracture.

He is a lance sergeant but he is not the master stitch. The DM as usual have trouble distinguishing between ranks and appointments. Good lad too. Until recently th shortest man in the household division.
