    My thoughts on this are no case to answer and, if charged, not guilty.

    As an aside, other than what we might loosely term Western Bloc countries, does anyone else publicly drag their troops through the courts like this? I don't read a lot of Russian, Chinese, or Middle Eastern news outlets so perhaps I'm unaware of it but do these or other countries observe the Geneva convention and their own domestic laws as rigorously?

    That's the fella I didn't want to name him however that is the guy in question.

    Bearing in mind this guy was captured in Iraq he was given mock executions stripped naked and tortured to a degree the Iraq miltia attempted to hand him and his mate over to Islamic terrorists in the area. They then refused to hand them over to British forces who caught wind of there capture. I can honestly say after serving with Colin that he is a guy of immense pride and integrity he is imo a hero. Some may say that I am looking at this in a tainted view however if I honestly believed that there was substance I would not be defending him on here or on social media.
    I understand you're in a difficult position but, on one hand you've vouched for his integrity whilst, one the other, you've stated there is no substance to the claim which he himself has made.

    Unless you've been out there and gone a mile in his shoes then you're not fit to judge his actions.

    That's it though he hasn't made the claim allegedly it was a ghost writer I did mention that earlier in the thread

    Floody is some guy,I remember when he first joined the company he would still want to sort things out the army way,it took him a while to adapt to civvy street methods. He had hollow legs,lost count of the number of times I got totally wrecked with him. Been a good few years since I last saw him.

    Wouldn't suprise me if he has he must be close to retirement age by now. Your right though he left in the summer of 96 as we left Inverness to go to colchester. He called me into his office and kindly reminded us all that we are representing the Bn on the advance party.
