The Queen’s Own Racist Rifles

The MoD has launched an investigation after a photograph of a soldier who had an offensive message written on his kit appeared in its official magazine.
The serviceman's left kneepad has "Get some Paki" scrawled on it. His picture featured in January's edition of Soldier magazine published for the UK armed forces by the Ministry of Defence. It has been photoshopped out on the website.

Quite right too.

One would hope that it would at least be someone in the Taliban that he was going to ‘get’.

"An investigation is currently underway to identify the soldier," said the MoD.

Well if this photograph is anything to go by – he’s a black guy.

As for his superiors – they've no doubt gone to spec-savers where there’s a ‘2 for the price of 1’ deal on excuses
