A bandsman got caught in the firing line of a horse's tail during the Queen's coffin procession today (19 September), when a wrong flick saw him whacked across the face.

Jumping around, one accidentally pointed its back end in the wrong direction, and before he knew it, the bandsman felt the power of its tail. Ouch.
