The point in the article about the current generation of servicemen being more "liberal" particularly impressed me; as a cold war 'Old n Bold' of the 70s and 80s this event certainly challenges my own standards of liberality. The Army is moving with the times.
Nontheless, best wishes to the newly married couple.
If the Army wants everyone to believe that we think stuff like this is normal, why the frig do they have to push it so much? I didn't notice my wedding being covered in the national press and I never got a Soldier Mag front cover telling everyone how much I like shagging girls...
As stated above,it's only the medja pushing this sort of thing.Normal marriages get no space at all.There are a lot of gays in the Beeb/medja etc,so that's no surprise.As for the Independent,it's not a paper I read,even if it is given away,in most places.
