A Honiton man has worked hard for the last five months to become an Exeter Red Coat Guide.
Jerry Holt, of Glen Farm Crescent, had to learn six walks of the city to pass an assessment.
The 66-year-old was presented with a red blazer at Exeter Guildhall last week by Cllr Olwen Foggin, the city’s lord mayor.
Jerry, who completed his first tour last Friday, said: “I am very happy - it is an achievement for me. It was hard work as I had to learn six different walks around the city. I do have an interest in history, and had been trying to get in for the last two years.”
Jerry was inspired to train as a red coat guide after he went on a couple of tours around three years ago.
