Went to river this morning to watch salute at 11.00am as listed on the Pool of London website. NO BANGS.
Came home checked on Belfast website - salute is at 3.50pm this afternoon.
Just in case anyone else had the same problem.

Whilst the July issue of in SE1 also gave the 11am time, I'm pleased to say that we published the correct 3.50pm time in last Monday's SE1 Direct email.

Though in fact nothing actually happened until 4.10... and even then it was rather underwhelming. Anyone know what happened?

No idea. I often wonder what the title of a post portends. For a brief second, I wondered whether this was to be a complaint about the antisocial noise. Instead, it turns out to be a complaint about the lack of noise...

I might have a word with a friend in the HAC to see what the problem was - do the HAC do all the London salutes, or only those in the Tower?
