This is a question In the Army Now - The joy of the Armed Forces

I've never been a soldier. I was an air cadet once, but that mostly involved sitting in a mouldy hut learning about aeroplane engines with the hint that one day we might go flying.

Yet, anyone who has spent time defending their nation, or at least drinking bromide-laced-tea for their nation, must have stories to tell. Tell them now.

The Sun story...
I used to go to school with the lad who pretty much kick-started the whole "UK Troops mistreating Iraqi prisoners" malarky that the newspapers seem to lap up.

Imagine my horror and delight as I picked up that day's "Sun" to see his squirming mug on the front. He'd gone to a local photo shop to have the pictures developed of him and his pals abusing Iraqis, like you do. The woman who developed them failed to see the funny side and alerted the police and the whole sorry mess began. He never was the sharpest tool in the box but this feat achieved new depths of idiocy.

He now cleans windows for a living.

Edit: I got a bit bored and found some links on this... www.albasrah.net/maqalat/english/kelly/Kelly.htm
