This dashing knight isn't your typical soldier. In fact, he has wings and a beak. Sir Nils Olav is the mascot of His Majesty The King of Norway's Guard and he was knighted in 2008. On Monday, August 23, the regal penguin was promoted to Brigadier Sir at the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland.
After the prestigious award was given, Brigadier Sir Nils Olav inspected the 50 uniformed soldiers of His Majesty the King of Norway's Guard.
Alright, looks good so far...
Are you smiling soldier?
Right, soldier, stand a little taller!
