Edited Highlights of the Funeral and Procession through the Streets of London yesterday.

THIS is how the British do Major Funerals!

The Cathedral Chapter are wearing Black Copes...The Set is known as "The Churchill Copes" because they were made for the Military Honours Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill...Ironically, the last, and only other Citizen to be have a televised Funeral of this nature with Her Majesty, The Queen Elizabeth II in attendance....Both were held at Saint Paul's Cathedral.

All other Funerals of this nature are reserved for members of Royalty...Or Armed Service Personnel who are killed in the line of duty. Whose parades were most noted for drawing mass crowds in Wotten Basset. But those Military Funerals are private and not televised.
