My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to this disgraceful story about how some servicemen, preparing to attend a fallen comrade's funeral, were treated when tying to buy a cup of coffee.
As per my chums from ARRSE:
"Browns Bar in Coventry refused to serve a group of Soldiers a cup of Coffee before they buried their fallen comrade Cpl Michael Thacker.It is disgraceful how some people in this coutnry treat those who are in our armed forces (and those who have left the armed forces)!
Local and regional news has been contacted to help raise awareness of the event. The soldiers were refused service because they were in Uniform whilst taking a break from rehearsing the funeral service. The soldiers were simply wanting a morning coffee.
Cpl Thacker's Wife said of the incident
'' ... I have to say when I found out this news i was horrified. Especially seeing as one of the men in uniform was his grieving brother! The lack of respect you have shown my husband, me and the lads yesterday will never be forgotten by the people in Coventry''.
The page on facebook has had almost 13,000 members in the past 4 hours. Please join even if you're not from Coventry. I spent 4 years in the city when at Uni there and this Bar has always been known for turning people away for feable reasons; but this is really low."
