My girlfriend was shocked and not a little disturbed to run into a load of soldiers as she was on her morning jog in Southwark park today (Sunday).
It was shortly before 09:00 (I was in bed!) when she met the group of about 20. They were all in line, marching with some sargeant (?) in a vest, bellowing "left, right". As it was near the gate in the road that runs through the park, she did not have any choice but to run past these soldiers (she thinks they are Territorials).
As I mentioned, she felt alarmed by this. Should they be in a public park? Are we at war? Haven't they got a parade ground? Shouldn't they have been in church?
Talk about wrecking a peaceful Sunday morning in the park with the birds for company.
