Soldier is refused room at hotel
Corporal Tomos Stringer
Corporal Tomos Stringer was out of uniform when tried to book a room

A soldier home on leave after being injured in Afghanistan was refused a room by a hotel when he showed his military ID card at reception.

Corporal Tomos Stringer, 23, from Gwynedd, was visiting a wounded colleague in Surrey when he was turned away from the Metro Hotel in Woking.

He spent the night in his car after being told it was management policy not to accept military personnel.

I AM INCENSED BY THIS REPORT I HAVE JUST READ ON THE NET, AND HE WASN'T EVEN IN UNIFORM.

I have emailed his M.P. and complained. It is a pity he doesn't have time to read this blog and learn how American service men are treated and respected.

IT'S TOMMY THIS AND TOMMY THAT, AND TOMMY
YOU'RE A FOOL,
BUT IT'S THANK YOU MR ATKINS WHEN THE TROOP SHIP IS IN THE POOL.
