NINETY Queen’s bandsmen on a tour of Australia have been kicked out of the country — because they could not pay their bills.
The musicians — from The Grenadier Guards and The Rifles — were only a third of the way through a tour of Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

Not thier fault, but a bit embarrasing nonetheless.
Absolutely distgusting treatment by the Australians. The British Ambassador gets paid to do a job so why didnt he intervene at the earliest opportunity. As far as I understand the company who went bust who was dealing with the tour was Australian so why didnt the Oz Govt get involved aswell.

Totally agree, read this story couple of days ago and was shocked at this treatment. Why responsibiltiy was left with the men I dont know, they were performing at the request of Australians afterall.

Poor treatment - hope it doesnt happen again.

An astonishing story. I cant believe that matters such as this are not carefully thought through by the MOD before sending blokes to the colonies.

Bet they come back bragging and "blowing their own trumpet".
