    British soldiers were "high" and gave horses alcohol

    From the Scotsman: UK soldiers 'plied horses with drink'

    The allegations have been made by a cavalryman with more than five years’ service under his belt. He claimed that before one parade being held in the Swiss city of Zurich, a gelding called Unknown was given eight cans of lager to drink by cavalrymen. The soldier told the newspaper: "Unknown still managed to perform all right after that lot but as he got back to the stables he collapsed." Describing the other allegations, he claimed horse manure was thrown over a naked recruit strapped to a fence and during shows troops stole thousands of pounds worth of riding equipment after stallholders were distracted. The soldier also told the newspaper: "Quite a few blokes were high during the Trooping of the Colour as well as a couple of state visits too."

    Voice,
    Why is it that you never miss a single opportunity to denigrate the armed forces of this country (and those of the US) by posting any unsubstantiated rumour, 'report', piece of innuendo etc? You do go just a bit beyond credibility.

    Would you call a cavalryman with 5 years of service under his belt, reporting on these appalling incidents "unsubsantiated rumour"? Would you say that a judge sentencing three servicemen for abuse was a matter of pure innuendo?

    Allan's point being only say good things about them, apparently.

    Obviously djeb. They cannot do any wrong apparently, and anyone who says otherwise must be a rumour monger, or "unpatriotic".
