Another Abingdon Connection in London

April 19, 2017

Abingdon Connection
About 2 years ago I reported that Spike Abbott had moved from Abingdon to become the newest member of the Body of Yeoman Warders at HM Tower of London.
Abingdon Connection
While in London – quite by chance – we met Spike at the corner of Drury Lane and Parker Street – at about 10:30 on Monday evening.

He was in mufti. Previously, Spike was in the RAF for 35 years (corrected from 30), and now guards the crown jewels.

    Great to bump into you Alistair. Just for the record, it was 35 years served, all helps with the pension!
