A QUEENS guardsman (SCOTS) saw red when a giggling student took the mickey out of him outside a royal palace by mimicking his actions - and went on the ATTACK.
Columbian student Nick Ibarra, 23, began larking about for pal Suzanne Cadosch, 22, who was videoing the armed guard on duty in his bearskin and red tunic.
As the guardsman marched up and down as he stood sentry duty outside St James Palace in front of dozens of tourists, laughing Nick marched alongside him.
He had heard that the famed royal guards never leave their post unless a threat to the royals presents itself. But he got the shock of his life when this one lost his cool and quick marched over to him and clipped him round the back of the head and aimed a boot at him.
Then according to Nick he pushed him away with his SA-80 semi automatic rifle while letting out a furious roar.
Unfortunately Nicks student pal Suzanne was so shocked and scared she stopped videoing the soldiers attack.
She said:I just thought Oh My God hes got a gun and hes going for Nick and he grabbed him and tried to boot him and we were so shocked we just ran away fast.
You often see people pulling faces at the guards and standing beside them for photos and marching along with them but obviously this soldier didnt find it funny.
In hindsight I can understand the soldier losing his cool but it was very frightening indeed she said.
Nick, who is studying English in Oxford, Oxon, said: I felt this huge hand on my collar and managed to avoid a boot up the backside but he was growling like a bear.
I was worried because he had a bayonet on his gun and didnt want that going somewhere painful! He pushed me away with the gun and I just ran for it, he said.
The guardsman was on sentry duty at St James Palace which is the senior Palace of the Sovereign and is where the Princess Royal and Princess Alexandra reside.
The St James Detatchment of The Queens Guard mounts sentry duty there daily and Clarence House where Prince Charles and his sons live is within St Jamess environs.
A Queens guardsman, on being shown the video, said: On one hand you can understand him wanting to put a hobnailed size 12 up the guys backside for taking the p**s.
But on the other hand he will be in hot water for losing his cool when he should have ignored it. He should have gone back into his sentry box and just stood guard.
But he will no doubt feel very satisfied at putting this oik to flight, he said.
