    I was a Soldier in the 1960s, I never thought I would live to see Trooper James leading from the front. I encounted lots of Gay Soldiers while I was serving, I never slept with one, but made it up with civilians!

  5. This is a PR stunt?

    As I see it the tri-servises want to attract people to join (from a civy street point of view). But there is a difference between serves people and civy street. Serves people are very full of themselves (extremely confident and arrogant). Gay’s in Civy street on the other hand are the opposite. However because of the way the environment has treated gay’s they are often better suited serves life, compared to the cotton-wall kid’s of today.

    Tpr Wharton needs a mandate and to be promoted to Sargent to have any clout over the other personnel.

    Come on Whitehall give him a proper job?

    Craig,
    What’s wrong with a Military Man shouting from the rooftops: “I’m a Gay Soldier, come and join me? Over the years, some of the most famous, succsessful Military men have been ‘closset gay’ when found out later. Thank goodness there is no need for a closset any more. As for a PR Stunt….Who cares if it achives it’s ends?

  7. Cant see it as a publicity stunt myself. Paul Cahill started up the GPA In a similar way back in the 90’s and ended up with an honour from HMQ; lets hope James gets a another gong!
