London. A captain of the British Army found it difficult to eat pizza. The captain is accused of breaking the curfew near the Russian border and coming to the camp 24 minutes late. Captain’s superiors reprimanded him for breaking curfew to get pizza and returning to camp 24 minutes late. The camp’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Rupert Streetfield, imposed a strict 9 pm curfew at the start of the war in March after being angered by soldiers’ late-night movements.
According to a report in Express UK, Captain James Shearer, under trial, told the court that he did not know the timing of the curfew. Which was changed from 10:30 pm to 9 pm in May. Because he was present in an armored vehicle that week. A 31-year-old Scottish intelligence officer has been fined three days’ pay after being accused at a brief hearing by Lt Col Street field.
However, Captain Shearer of the 1st Battalion of The Royal Wells appealed the decision. A brief one-day trial took place at Bulford Military Court in Wiltshire. The judge and board members took 20 minutes to uphold the commanding officer’s decision. Captain Shearer told the court that he did not want to pay the fine.
Earlier this year, Captain Shearer’s Royal Wales Battalion took over as the lead unit of the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup in Estonia. The purpose of this operation is to strengthen European security in the event of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Representing the Crown, Lieutenant Commander Edward Hanna said that on 7 May Captain Shearer was deployed to the camp in Estonia on Operation Cabrit. He said that Shearer was aware of the curfew. He should have returned to the camp by the stipulated time. Giving evidence, Acting Major Matthew Ixer told the court that like everyone else, Captain Shearer had the option of ordering online and had easy access.
