Guardsman to resign in disgust after his picture was used below the word ‘snowflakes’ in a controversial recruitment campaign

The soldier, who is based at Wellington Barracks in London, expressed his fury on Facebook in a discussion with other troops dismayed about the £1.5 million campaign. One squaddie wrote: ‘Imagine the army taking a photo of you and writing “snow flake” in massive bold letters above your head. I’d be signed straight off.’

To which Guardsman McWhirter responded: ‘Don’t f****** worry, mate, I am.’
