Stephen Birnbaum's nickname for London Pensioners

Jump to last reply

Stephen Birnbaum was my teacher of things travel, especially to Europe - and even more especially to London. Like many others, I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. Many have tried to emulate his work, but, at least to my mind, no one comes close.

Unfortunately, I have long since thrown away my UK guide and I am trying to recall a term Stephen used - the nickname for pensioners who reside at the Royal Hospital, Cheslea. The term I seek is NOT Peelers.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you.
