Are they REALLY WAFUs? *

Pub landlady Hayley Nicholas branded the behaviour of Royal Navy sailors at the Red Lion Pub (pictured top), Helston, Cornwall as 'disgusting and completely unacceptable' and explained how the drunken personnel from 820 Royal Naval Air Squadron refused her pleas to moderate their behaviour.

* Or lost sundodgers from the Guzz reunion weekend!

We would just like to let our customers know, that the article that has gone out in the Daily Mail today is close to 100% untrue! Everything that has been said is exaggerated & basically guessed due to the fact that when a free-lance reporter came into our pub and asked us for information, we said, without a second thought - no comment! We are extremely unhappy that this newspaper has decided to take it upon itself to fabricate large parts of this story to make it worthy to be on their website.
We would also like to make it clear that we as a public house and Helston as a town have a close relationship with Culdrose and navy personnel & think it’s awful that this article is attempting to tarnish the reputation they uphold!!
What else is new?

^^ Moral of the story: if it's from the Daily Mail/Mail on Sunday don't bother reading it - it's more than likely to be lies.
 
WOW & BZ to @Naval_Gazer for bringing #4 to our attention.

Despite the damage done 'tis hardly likely that the DM will offer any meaningful retraction...:rolleyes:


Only positive here being that the publication of the story brings publicity to the publican AAT when pubs are shutting down wholesale nationwide.;)

It does rather leave you wondering what did happen. The pub says the report was nearly 100% false which suggests that hidden in there somewhere there is a grain of truth. Finally who alerted the Sunday Mail to the goings on? Someone has a good dit to tell but I doubt they will ever own up.

From a commenter on the Red Lion's post:

"I was in there last Sunday, although the lads were annoying as fuck they were just being lads having a few beers being a bit loud. I read the article and I did not see any sex acts take place and one of them actually came over to say sorry for their rowdiness. Perhaps a telling off to rain it in is in place as it was a Sunday afternoon but definitely not worth “booting them out of the armed forces” as the article said. "

Story : By Mark Nicol for The Mail on Sunday.

Where he also poses as the - wait for it - "Mark Nicol Defence Correspondent For The Mail On Sunday"

Mark Nicol was educated at Belmont Abbey in the SAS’ home town of Hereford. His father, a Lieutenant Colonel, served in the SAS between 1970 and 1988 and was awarded the MBE.

Mark, 31, worked on regional newspapers after graduating from Reading University with a degree in Politics and International Relations.
He was then a reporter for the Evening Standard, Sunday Mirror and the News of the World before writing Ultimate Risk, SAS Contact Al Qaeda the story of the biggest and most destructive battle of the SAS’ history. Ultimate Risk, set in Afghanistan in November 2001, was serialised over two days by The Sun and published by Macmillan in October


N of W? Mirror? The Sun? Impeccable crudentials, say no more...:rolleyes:
