The Yeoman of the Guard character jug modeled by Stanley J. Taylor and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1991-1997. Under its official title, "The Queen's Body Guard of the Yeomen of the Guard", this is the oldest extant British military corps. Created by Henry VII in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field, it is a permanent corps in attendance on the sovereign of England, a part of the royal household, whose duties, now purely ceremonial, were originally that of the Sovereign's personal bodyguard. Due to the similarity in uniforms, they are often confused with the Yeoman Warders, or Beefeaters. The Yeomen of the Guard's most famous duty is to search the cellars of the Palace of Westminster prior to the State Opening of Parliament, a tradition that dates back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up Parliament. The uniform worn by the Yeomen of the Guard consists of a royal red tunic with purple facings and stripes and gold lace ornaments, together with a red cross-belt, red knee-breeches and red stockings, flat hat, and black shoes with red, white and blue rosettes. It is the red cross-belt that distinguishes the Yeomen of the Guard from the Yeomen Warders. A raven and a tree trunk form the handle of the jug.
