Staff Sgt David Howard, 39, was also branded a "fat hairy beast" and mocked about his sex life. Mr Howard, who has left the Army, won a racial discrimination case last March and has been awaiting compensation since. After the award he said: "I am absolutely delighted. To get this amount in these circumstances is just and right. "My case has been going on for four years and the MoD has been trying to hide behind a number of loopholes in the law." The tribunal last year heard how the sergeant, from Newcastle, was insulted in a mocked-up job description he found in an officer's desk in Germany. He was tagged "Bubba" after a retarded black character in the film Forrest Gump. The file also contained barbed comments about his Army record, wife and domestic situation. The MoD has conceded he was a victim of racial harassment and discrimination. so what happend to the Officer?
