Six soldiers, reportedly members of the SAS, were arrested yesterday and charged with embezzling thousands of pounds earmarked for jungle training.
The soldiers are the first in the history of the elite regiment to be publicly court martialled for such a serious criminal offence.
It is alleged that more than £250,000 was taken from a budget for exercises in Brunei and Borneo between 2003 and 2006.
