A man walks the world to face our enemies, and then is punished for making a mistake. I forgive him and so should the men who order him into war. If he is guilty then so are the (mind my french) Cunts that run our country for making mistakes on their wrong decisions.

He was in possession of a firearm given to him by foreign leaders. More to the story.

Another classic example of' Military Justice'(?) exceeding the requirement for a just outcome to a trivial and inconsequential error. (Regardless of the manner of ownership of the weapon!)
Loss of 40 years Pension Rights - @600k, Loss of Lump Sum @ 3 times Annual Pension 45k.
Immediate loss of home.
Loss of a highly trained and valuable Soldier Asset - beyond valuation.
Social effect(Stigma et al) on one Wife loyal for years to an organisation that demands more of them as individuals...

Devastating to his two Children and extended Family overseas and at Home.

I completely agree. SHAME on the Army and a bigger SHAME on his Commanding Officer.

This is a judgement of a Martial Court against one of their own, not the judgement of a Cvil Court. So why the harshness? Is there more to it than meets the eye? The enqiry must go on.

Sgt Nightingale did not pack his own kit. It was packed in his absence. His kit should have been checked by a senior officer. It wasn't. Sgt. Nightingale has been made the fall-guy for failures in the system. If he had wanted a Glock, he could have got one home easily. This is a stitch. Get him out of jail now...
