On his way to Liverpool Street station, Mr Monkey passed Armoury House, the headquarters of the Honourable Artillery Company on City Road. The HAC is oldest regiment in the British Army, and is one of the few regiments allowed to march through the City of London with fixed bayonets, beating drums and unfurled colours. Since 1537 members of the HAC have been exempt from jury service. Closer to the station, Mr Monkey had a quick look at the front of St Mary Moorfields. He'd never seen a church with a built-in jewellers before.
You can read about the HAC at the Honourable Artillery Company website.
