    A former paratrooper waged a back garden guerrilla war against his neighbours when a petty dispute got out of hand, a court heard yesterday.

    Rod Scott, 64, set up a 16ft viewing platform draped in camouflage netting in his garden to observe Tony and Janet Durkin 'morning, noon and night.'

    The retired teacher and his wife felt 'under siege' from his never-ending 'surveillance' and became prisoners in their own home.

    Anyone know of this chap?

  2. Been done mate, have a scout round :D
  3. No but i wish i did. looks like he could be a very handy person to know.
  4. Any chance of a link? Can't find anything.

    I like the way the neighbours think his is qualled up in all manner of ninja stuff. Like, er, getting blatently pictured taking pictures of houses or building 16ft observation towers :D

    Can we research the guy and find out if he is the real deal or an ex chef or somthing?

    Edited to add: He's also wearing AAC insignia if my eyes see straight. He must have transferred at some point.

  10. Saw this in the paper-what a loon! Building an OP on your garden shed- his neighbour came of a bit of a exagerating dick though 'This man has three guns in his house and admits to being a trained killer' Oooh, how dare they let anyone whos had military training out on the street, they should be locked up as being potential murderers because they've handled a firearm! Not excusing the batsh1t insane behaviour of the chap in question though...
  11. It's not, no it can't be, is it Gen Mike Jackson?!
  12. Not fighting an enemy then make one.
