  3. Let me get this straight...
    His house was searched because someone alleged that he inflated his tales of courage/ leadership. Surely there is some form of cross-checking tales of daring before awards are dished out? Or is there a push for medals- Rourkes Drift Syndrome?

    Great contrbution to the thread, is that a taxi for you ?
     
  5. A bit off thread, but whatever he actually did must have pissed off somebody for him to be dismissed. I've seen all sorts of shenanigans over the years, but anyone actually caught was manipulated into resigning rather than being bowler-hatted.
     
  6. The article said he had over 200 electronic "sensitive documents" ammunition and an inoperable pistol. Maybe they're making an example of him, after all as a major he should know better.
     
  7. Wasn't there something around a few years ago if memory serves called the OSA ?
     
  8. OSA?
     
  9. Stop fishing Crow Bag!
     
  10. Ah,....."Best Friends" wiv CB?!

    Sweet.........
     
  11. I thought he was RIR but article says he was a gunner.

    Bloody fool, that'll cost him financially if nothing else (well, a lot else but you know what I mean).
     
  13. He'll keep his pension though?

    39 so assuming about 18 year's service?

    What's that worth, about 25k pa?
