Soldiers do Beatles impression at iconic Abbey Road crossing
King’s Troop recreate famous album cover as they prepare to leave St John’s Wood
They are two of the most familiar sights in St John’s Wood – and last week they came together for a truly unique moment.
Ahead of their impending exit from the neighbourhood next February, the King’s Troop struck a familiar pose on Abbey Road’s zebra crossing to recreate the Beatles’ famous album cover.
The Troop, which is regularly seen throughout St John’s Wood, is set to leave the St John’s Wood Barracks in February for a new base in Woolwich.
The Barracks have been sold to property developers for �250million to create a luxury housing development.
