Daily Wail fails again

It has been reported that an RAF private (sic) used JPA to fiddle thousands of pounds. Having read tales of woe concerning JPA I'm amazed that he managed to get JPA to do anything useful!

I like his uniform. I knew the RAF trousers were pants but those !

Among the lavish purchases made with the money from the first hack were a £1,990 pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, a £435 Balmain top, a £740 Kurt Geiger shoes
Given the crap he is wearing on duty these were obviously for his off duty wear.

From what little I know about fashion I would suggest the shoes were not for his own use. Unless Loboutin make menís shoes as well.

At least he spent the monies on some sensible stuff and not a house for his ducks, it appears they are all at it.. Err isn't that an air cadet uniform?

Funny how everyone remembers the duck house, which was in fact a disallowed claim where no offence was involved, but nobody remembers the four MPs (all Labour incidentally) who were tried, convicted and imprisoned for false accounting.

The cap badge definitely looks like ATC as the CCF wore an RAF cap badge.

Sod the cap badge and fashion comments - if this alleged thief is convicted for effectively stealing from his colleagues, I hope that the sentence will be long and harsh.

Louboutin does make some fantastic mens shoes, however, they make some ghastly ones too.

Trio? Oh well, just goes to show there are three kinds of people in this world.....those that can count and those that can't.

I see the DT says he was an ex army lance corporal. Clearly the Daily Fail saw St Athan and joined up all the dots.

I've told this tale before, but mention of "theft from a comrade" brings it back to mind again.....

... at the risk of thread drift, that reminds me of a tale told by an erstwhile colleague, a Para officer.

When a young subaltern, he had decided to carry out a no-notice block/barrack inspection of his troop. He was not put off by his wise SNCO i/c firmly trying to tell him that it would not be a good idea that night.

During the inspection, he discovered one poor trooper, sat by his bed, with his hand firmly affixed to his bedside locker - with a commando-style knife through the palm!

SNCO i/c: "Theft from a comrade Sir, he won't do it again!"
Good to know that BEags would approve.......

Character in post #1 has a Linkedlin account and this among other things states:
he was a soldier in the British Army from May 2011 to July 2016 in Cardiff

It did. Before the introduction of the rank of aircraftman in 1919, the basic ranks in non-technical trades were private first and second class

Or did you mean something else?.
