SPOTTED: IT Style ~ no. 4 (Jubilee Edition)

“The young need discipline and a full bookcase” (Vivienne Westwood)

Name: The Army Cadets Force

Location: St. Leonard’s Terrace, off The King’s Road – (near the National Army Museum)

Story: A slightly longer version than normal!

I was driving on The King’s Road and I spotted the cadets walking on the other side of the road, in the opposite direction.  I quickly did a U-turn (risking getting a ticket, as one cannot hide from the cameras driving in London!) and looked out for them in the busy Jubilee-weekend crowds.  I eventually spotted them walking down a side street (the ‘look’ was not hard to miss!) and luckily managed to figure out the tricky one-way system. I pulled up just past them as they were approaching around the bend.  I reversed my car back around the corner, put my hazard lights on, called out to them, and brought the whole troop back for these photos.  They said they were in London for the annual Trooping the Colour.  Traffic warden was approaching and I had to dash, going our seperate ways.  No more information was gathered. It all happened in what felt like two nanoseconds.

Wearing: National Pride

Style Inspiration: ‘Serve your country’

So young and sweet, yet so mature and committed all at the same time.   If all the youth were as disciplined as these, the future would be more promising! Ms. Westwood, you should be proud!
