Camelot International > Tower of London

In 1986, Tony Strafford retired from the army with the rank of Sergeant Major after 22 years of service. Since that time he has been a Yeoman Warder at Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London.

Tony has very kindly given us permission to reproduce some tracks from his CD entitled "Tower of London: Tales of bravery, murder and intrigue". We haven't reproduced all the tracks as we would like you to buy the CD from the Tower and the Tony would be pretty annoyed if people stopped buying his album because we put it all on the internet. If you can't get to the Tower but would like to buy the CD then I suggest that you contact the retail dept. of the Tower of London and ask about mail order. They don't have a catalogue to the best of my knowledge but if you know what you want then they will do their level best to accomodate you.

All the tracks presented here are Copyright Tony Strafford © 1999 and any reproduction in whole or in part is strictly prohibited.
