Anyone recognise this bloke ?

I normally avoid walt hunts but the following exchange livened up a dull and very humid afternoon in the office.

A colleague was emailed by an acquaintance, let's call her Gullible Woman, saying she had been chatting to a bloke on an online dating site who said he was in in the Army but wondered if he was genuine.

Office "Well have you any info on him ?"

GW "He sent me this"

Object: a little about me


how are you ? it is a real pleasure to have you on hotmail....
My name once again is James Howard, I was born on the 23 December 1954 in Norfolk,UK. I was educated at Felsted School and St Lawrence College.
Throughout my 35-years career, I have served seven tours of duty with the 1st Battalion in Northern Ireland and also with the UN in Cyprus and for many years in Germany before I commanded the Battalion in the Air-mobile role from 1989 to 1991.
Amongst my appointments on the Staff, as Colonel Higher Command and Staff Course/Doctrine at the Army Staff College, Camberley in 1992-93 and now occupying my current position as the Commanding officer for the British Royal Army stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. I will however soon be retiring from the army in 30 days time from now.
Office "Wow, that's a very impressive career. But he doesn't say which regiment/corps. Any other info you can give us?"

GW "He sent me a photo. He seems to have lots of medals. He said the pic was taken when he went to a ceremony."

Office "Can you send it to us ?"

GW "Sure, here it is."

Office "Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha .......... "

We sent her the wiki link to who is really in the picture.

Do we get a medal for outing the highest ranking walt ? :)
I was going to offer to chat to your colleague, but one thinks that she must be quite old with saggy tits if she is going for that chap.
No,that's me. My colleague is a very fit 26 year old. Her acquaintance must be of a certain age. Unless she is into older blokes ...
I honestly never knew I served in the British Royal Army but hey you learn something everyday!
In my day having a 'scoring name' as an alias was essential to avoid being compromised. Perhaps Gen Dannat is on the prowl for available members of the fairer sex. Bad persec though.
