Charanpreet Singh Lall was part of the Queen's birthday festivities in London this weekend as part of his duties in the British Army.
While one of about a thousand soldiers, the 22-year-old Coldstream Guards soldier stood out during the Trooping the Colour ceremony because of his headwear: a turban.
The India-born Sikh became the first guardsman to wear a turban during the parade. His fellow soldiers sported furry bearskin hats.
