That said, the thought occurs that anyone with a soldier's details in their filofax is potentially in the dwang. But that makes no sense on its own (you'd wind up arresting half the population of, say, Sleaford for starters) so I imagine there'll have been another reason that the spooks were watching this chap.
Was published in the Daily Mail yesterday (before for I get accused of breaking OPSEC etc) The Soldier was a PWRR soldier who has recently received the MC. DM was asked not to publish his name but rather surprisingly, considering the circumstances of this case, they ignored and published name, photo and pic of wife. Cheers good blokes.
I would suggest you can expect to see this case in future lectures or briefings on talking to the media after ops. This was the chap that was carperted earlier this year reference talking to local rag about actions on Telic 4.
Small hint fellas - make sure you are not on the public list of the electoral roll, that you are ex-directory in the phone book and that you are registered with the Mailing Preference Service (www.mpsonline.org.uk) and Telephone Preference Service (www.tpsonline.org.uk). This will make you a little less traceable should some toe-rag get hold of your name.
