Is it theoretically (or practically) possible for a 22 year gurkha to become a Yeoman Warder?
22 years not 30. Read on:-hud_scoff_to_win said:last time we went on the ceremony of the keys drink up/guided tour,the lad that showed us round the tower indicated that to serve as a yeoman warder required THIRTY years of un-blemished service.
he said that meant 'going un-detected for thirty years',no mean feat.
we went with the royal marine,s association,and no branch of the navy has ever been allowed to become a yeoman warder,i think there history at the tower goes back over 900 years!
so only eight years to go.
Yes, I visited the tower a few months ago and the Yeoman Warder who was our guide said in order to become a warder you do need LS&GC and 22 years unnoticed... err unblemished service.Busterdog said:I was always under the impression Yoeman Warders had to be retired British Warrant Officers, recipients of the LS&GC medal (?)
