Sikh Soldier Makes History as He Guards Buckingham Palace Wearing Turban Instead of Traditional Bearskin

Rebecca English at the Daily Mail reports that a guardsman at Buckingham Palace wears a turban instead of bearskin, breaking a 180-year tradition. English believes that the event shows a “glimpse into the changing face of Britain.” The Sikh guardsman, Jatinderpal Singh Bhullar, said, “Conducting public duties while being a practising Sikh and wearing my turban is a great honour for me …The regiment is full of history, as is my religion.”
