    Private Hylton claimed he was racially abused on a 'regular basis'

    Kerry Hylton, a Jamaican army chef, was called a 'black *******' by a Lance Corporal colleague whilst serving with the Welsh Guard near Buckingham Palace.
    Pte Hylton, of Woolwich, received one payout last April for the racist insults, but lodged another claim that was due to be heard yesterday.
    However, it emerged a settlement with the Ministry of Defence had been reached.
  2. Oh dear.
  3. Does this mean that I can claim for being called a Jock Barsteward?
  4. I wonder if a white person would have got a payout for racial abuse? Say a Scottish or Welsh soldier serving in a predominately English unit?
  5. I was racially abused in Depot,I was called a crow,feck me I cant even fly :)
  6. I was verbally abused most days "geordie foock pig ,etc etc" as a young Junior Leader back in the 80s can I have some compo please?

  7. No chance of that, as you are well aware, you cannot be racist to a white English male.

    Racism is a colour thing, sadly, white is not a colour in the spectrum of racism.

    So Scots and Welsh can get payouts, by your reckoning :wink:

    I do know what you really meant though.

  9. Apparently, they can, as long as it is not used to purchase deep fried food, cocaine, or sexual rights to farm animals.

    Hope this helps ;)
  10. what about gwars ??
  11. Army getting taken for a ride yet again.
