Princess Productions would like to apologise unreservedly for the letter posted on the British Army Rumour Service website which has just been brought to our attention and we have requested be taken down. A junior member of staff, who has been with the company less than a week, took what was a well-intentioned but hopelessly misguided decision to post this note. It was an appalling mistake for which they are truly sorry. The concept as described would never have been pursued at all and we once again apologise absolutely for any upset or offence caused. James Townley, Head of Communications, Princess Productions.
