Interesting photos. Especially the first one showing the rifles are inoperable as they have no magazine wells. Special made honor guard rifles. I guess if anyone attacks the position guarded by the soldier he will bayonet them to death.

It almost seems like that is Czech ROTC verses a real military honor guard. Just a thought.

The lack of a magazine makes it much easier to conduct the manual of arms. They are a ceremonial unit. The guys with the loaded guns are inside watching via video cameras.
