Off to London? First Woman Beefeater Now at Tower

I wonder how many Wilmette residents are off to England this week? Sometimes I am not sure whether its more popular in July to celebrate America's independence from England, or visit England. Whatever the case may be, starting on Monday, you will actually have a chance to see a woman Beefeater when you visit the Tower of London. Moira Cameron, pictured in the middle, above, is the first in 522 years. The Beefeaters, more formally known as Yeoman Warders, guard the Tower, and must have more than 20 years of military service to do so.
