An Un-PC Tour of the Tower of London
A retired Army Sergeant Major gives a tour at the Tower of London. He begins part two of four by warning older tourists, in perfect voice projection unique to Sergeant Majors, they need to catch up to the rest of the group:
"It is an amazing fact that the elderly just don't realize how little time they have left. This could be your last holiday so make the most of it. Cram it all in... (whispering) before you die.
The Sergeant Major issues caution of just who writes history:
History is nearly always written by the people who win. (A Pause) This explains all the empty pages in French history books.
Finally, the Sergeant Major prepares the group to charge the inner ward:
"Charge is a military term. It means to move rapidly to engage in eager combat with an enemy so lets not have the Italians at the front."
