Earlier today I cheekily speculated about English Defence League supporter @wearethebrits, who claims to be a former member of the Parachute Regiment. I wondered if this were actually true, or whether he's what our lads in uniform like to call a "walt".
In response, somebody was kind enough to send me a screenshot of the comments from his YouTube account.
Okay, it could just be a typo, apart from one thing.
The Parachute Regiment did not fight in the first Gulf War.
