    I reckon Danny Nightingale will be threaders to learn Major Armstrong was given a one year suspended prison sentence for similar firearms offences.

     
  5. Thought that myself Ninja. no consistency in sentencing there at all. That old oxymoron ;Military Justice' ;)

    Reading the sister thread on ARRSE, it would appear he wasn't actually tried for firearms offences. Odd that.

    The pistol the Major had was inoperative, therefore it was a hammer. For Waltitude At the top of the Shortt index, he's in utter disgrace. Her Majesty commands it.

    IIRC, at the retrial, Nightingale's sentence was also suspended.

    Hereford Hooligan has Gun. Go on!
