Three British soldiers who were on COVID-19 testing duty incurred the wrath of their superiors for posing naked on a Red Arrow jet next to a memorial to two dead airmen.
The Red Arrows jet is parked next to a plaque marking the deaths of Flight Lieutenants Jon Egging and Sean Cunningham, who died in separate accidents in 2011.
Colour Sergeant ‘Tats’ Taylor, posted X-rated pictures on Facebook of himself with Corporal Shane Woods and Private Anthony Panton posing on a Red Arrows jet after a boozy party.
The 49-year-old captioned the images: ‘Think we took over RAF Scampton’ and a laughing emoji.
The trio had spent ten days carrying out Covid-19 checks in the Lincolnshire community.
Senior figures are said to be furious with the pictures which were taken on Friday, at the historic home of The Dambusters after a boozy party, The Sun reports.
A source told The Sun: “The soldiers were naked except for their regimental headdress.
“It brings the army into disrepute and the battalion as well. It’s so disrespectful.
“Tats put the pictures up on Facebook but took them down after, but it was too late, everyone had seen them. They know they’re in the s***.”
It is claimed the three soldiers had been given alcohol as a token of appreciation by the local council after spending 10 days at the mobile Covid-19 testing site at the Lincolnshire base.
An Army spokesman said: “This behaviour clearly contradicts the discipline we ask personnel to display. We will deal with the matter accordingly.
