PTP, sorry if this post breaks site rules.

Three soldiers have been jailed and thrown out of the Army after admitting charges relating to a money-making plot to smuggle guns out of Iraq.

A court martial heard how non-commissioned officers (NCOs) from the Yorkshire Regiment bought cheap pistols on the Iraqi black market and smuggled them back in Army vehicles to Germany. Once back at base the guns were then sold to other soldiers. The NCOs alleged to have masterminded the operation will appear before a military court next year.

Four
soldiers who either bought or hid weapons at their base in Germany admitted their role in the scam last year and were sentenced at Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire.
