Soldier guilty of attempted murder.

So not really a 'soldier' then.
I think what you and the media meant was 'civilian guilty of trying to kill his wife who just happens to be an ex STAB.

Shurely shome mistake? Regular Reservist according to the article.
So-Ex-Soldier tries to off his wife. Let's not bring the STABS and ARABS thing into this one as well!

I'm reminded of Sideshow Bob's riposte: " Attempted murder! What is that?! I mean, do they give Nobel Prizes for 'attempted physics'?"

They give £120,000 a year to GP's to practise medicine?

The bloke was a fool, any sensible person would have strapped it under the dash and attached the pin to the clutch. Some people these days.

News said he was in the TA for 10 years. That'll be a STAB then. In fairness he wasn't trying to kill her, he just wanted the grenade pin for his smock. The one with green socks sewn on the cuffs.

He obviously underestimated the ballistic efficiency of rolls and rolls of fat!



...and pregnancy's no excuse!

Odd career path according to the Beeb
BBC News - Ex-soldier guilty of trying to kill wife in Kent car blast

"The court heard Fabian was a reservist after serving in the Army between 1994 and 2004, and had been called up to complete a tour of Afghanistan in January 2010.

He stole the hand grenade during a training exercise ahead of the deployment.


A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said he was in the Territorial Army as a reservist, and was no longer a regular, full-time soldier"

A six-year lay off seems a bit unusual?

He must have been a stab or he would have achieved his objective. He probably got tired crawling up to her window and jibbed!
 
#15
Why on earth did he only use one HE grenade on the fat mess?

There would have been more chance of dropping a bull rhino with a .177 air rifle pellet.

Surely somebodies going to be in the shite over the grenade? How was this knobber able to take said grenade? Unless the drills have changed from my 1980's day you were only given the primed grenade just before entering the throwing bay.

Even baader- Mienhoff didnt try that

Depends on what his job is on the range, Its not hard to nick small items if you really want to.

You're joking aren't you. After the transistion to field firing any old idiot can carry a HE around with them on a Section or Platoon range. Unless they were in my section then kill joy here would carry them all and hand them out when necessary. Pardon me for not trusting someone who's facebook photo was either them in a Bob Marley hat back home or holding a loaded GPMG in one hand and the belt in the other.
