Soldier is vomited on by fellow trooper - but doesn't even flinch
A soldier at today's Remembrance Sunday ceremony in central London was projectile vomited on by a fellow trooper - but did not even flinch.
The trooper - who was stood close to the Cenotaph where the Queen laid her wreath this morning - was seen covered in bright yellow sick after the man behind him became ill.
The bile covered his back, cap and even his hair.
But despite being caked in the smelly puke, the soldier stood ram-rod straight in a truly impressive display of self control.
His actions were a stark contrast to a couple who sparked fury after they were seen talking and then waving during the Remembrance Sunday two minute silence.
They were spotted at the Cenotaph in London on TV coverage of the sombre and dignified event - which is to show respect for the servicemen and women of Britain and the Commonwealth who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect us.
A woman, seen behind silent servicemen in the footage, can be seen talking to a man as the nation fell silent.
She appears to bring his attention to something, before he raises his arm and waves.
It may be that she saw someone they knew, or perhaps had seen herself on a screen showing the coverage.
Twitter users were furious.
