54 character references were offered in his defence including Navy Top Brass and his former Nanny, to no avail.
He is to forfeit his Honorary Captaincy but retain his Commanders' pension.

I'm aware of the case and know it has made the Janner Journal.

Character references are not given in defence as such. In fact given that they usually glow, they can assist the prosecution, the jury and the judge by demonstrating what a sneaky bastard the accused was.

Some of us thought Allan Grimson was a great guy.... d'oh!

He is to forfeit his Honorary Captaincy but retain his Commanders' pension.
Like it or not, he's entitled to his pension and there is unlikely to be a mechanism by which he can forfeit it.

Should be forfeit while he's in prison to offset the cost of keeping him there....reinstated on his release.
Assuming that he is sent to prison. All those glowing testimonials might just save him. Some M'luds like that kind of thing despite @Seadog thinking otherwise.

A photographers delight. Even more of him online as he is rather irresistibly lovely
You may need another hard drive to store the library of photographs of the former Commander that you're collecting. From grade 1 in his civvies, to grade 5, the worst type, in his number ones with breast pocket white hanky.
