Not MODs money, it is our money
 
snip from article...

L/Cpl Momonakaya told the newspaper: ‘The racism left me wanting to kill myself. I was going to buy a rope.

Are the other five due a payout as well?
 
Abused?! Oh, like this you mean?


Or how about:


Same movie, made in 1965, and the attitudes and mores it portrays were sadly all too common only 22 odd years earlier. Edited to add, the British author Ray Rigby who wrote The Hill, the movie, two excerpts of which are shown here, spent two terms in Detention Barracks during the Second World War, and so knew whereof he spoke.

The problem is more that the MOD is reluctant to fight these things in court as regardless of the outcome they end up costing a lot more. Win/win for the offended soldier.
