Swappit soldiers

DIARY reader Bill Brown spotted that the caption for my photo last week of the four service personnel from Henley who are serving in Afghanistan was incorrect.

The caption mistakenly identified Royal Artillery officer Major Del Tickner as Capt Edward Harris of the Coldstream Guards and vice-versa.

Bill, himself a veteran, says: “It screamed at me the moment I saw it and I retired 40 years ago.”

In my defence, the information was supplied by the army and, unlike Bill, I didn’t recognise the men’s regimental berets.

Army PR Sarah Kingshott says: “Sorry for the confusion. You have an eagle-eyed reader there. Well done to him for picking it up.”
