Tower of London Ex-Royal Navy Beefeater

A former Royal Navy serviceman is one of the latest ex-forces members to become an iconic Tower of London Beefeater.

Terry Briggs is the Tower's latest recruit and the 408th Yeoman Warder.

The father-of-two served in the Royal Navy for more than 32 years before moving to the new role, which dates back to the 19th century.

Born and raised in London, YW Briggs was a Warrant Officer based at Northwood NATO HQ.

He also served with the Royal Navy in the Gulf specialising in mine warfare and is a keen motorbike enthusiast. 

Terry has joined 36 other Yeoman Warders in guarding the Tower.
