Luckily, it was another false alarm. But, this is now a feature of life in Britain, with everyone on such a 'short fuse' after the London Attacks. To see the military on our streets is still quite a shock to many of us that are more used to a civil society.
Roads blocked off at stort notice, worried looks on the publics face. There was a small explosion, with the distruction of a suspect package.
Roads opened again, life returns to normal. But at the back of everyones mind there is still much concern. There will be many more false alarms.

including the amount of 'togging up', that this soldier need to do, just in case ......
