Seems very for real, but am curious about the nurse links. A walting nurse? Why?
In fact as follow up he wrote this to an ARRSER Byronik:
"The healthy scepticism expressed by the ARRSEur known as Buck Felize prompted me to e-mail the man himself for his permission to share one of the scanned documents attached to his threat of legal action on Thu, 28 Aug 2008: a letter from Major Grover RM dated Feb. 2, 1982.
Here is Shortt's response, unedited apart from a few paragraph breaks to make it readable.[/b]
Thank you for asking but I am not inclined to give any permission.
The individual can make direct contact with me if he wishes, as you have done.
As a journalist you will be aware, in any case of defamation I do not have to prove what I say but the the person(s) making the remarks must prove what they say. That said I will clarify that I was given leave of absence from the Capuchin Franciscans in the summer of 1974 to enable me to train as a nurse (then SRN under GNC but now called RGN under UKCC). During that the 3 year period of training for SRN I left the order to get married. "
