Your comment on The News website is slightly more critical, WD. Wassup? Bitter much? :?
I actually do think it's newsworthy, as it demonstrates that Civil Servants are willing and able to serve in a frontline unit alongside their uniformed colleagues. Many members of the public will not realise this, so the story - despite it's alleged inaccuracies - will go someway to inform and educate them about ALL aspects of the roles conducted by the MOD.
