    In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service said John Hardy had served as a colour sergeant at the Royal Military Academy, where British army officers are trained.

    "It is alleged that from 10 February 2006 to 15 October 2008, 34 payments were made to either John Hardy or Claire Hardy totalling over £23,000 for stories relating mainly to the Royal Family or matters at Sandhurst," it said.

    Betraying trust, taking backhanders, giving off the record information to newspapers?

  3. £1,250 for 5 articles? **** me she's cheap
  4. meanwhile officers on SSSA rent out there flats whilst living at home and reap in HDT pay, everyone is at it.
  5. Do you mean they sublet the SSSA? Or do you mean they let their own homes whilst in SSSA. I did, and quite lawfully, too. If you believe someone is breaking regulations, report the matter to MOD Police - don't just post tittle-tattle here!
