    Thumbs up Meet the First Sikh Soldiers to Guard the Queen !!

    These are the first two Sikh soldiers to have the honour of guarding the Queen.

    Signaler Simranjit Singh, 26, and Lance Corporal Sarvjit Singh, 28, proudly pose with
    their guns while on duty in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

    Signaler Singh made history as the very first Sikh soldier to wear his turban on Public Duties guarding the monarch
    and protecting the Crown Jewels. He was soon joined by Lance Corporal Singh.


    The proud soldier from Coventry enthusiastically took on the duty for the first time in May this year.

    He serves with 21st Signal Regiment based in Chippenham, Wiltshire, while Lance Corporal serves
    with 3rd Regiment Army Air Corps based at Wattisham, Suffolk.

    Turbans, long hair and beards are considered a mandatory religious uniform for all Sikhs.

    Keeping uncut hair is required according to the Rehat Maryada, the Sikh instruction for living.
