Whilst the British military have allowed openly gay service for just over a decade, many gay soldiers serving in the armed forces continue to report widespread examples of bullying, intimidation and general 'mickey-taking'.

In order to combat this, the Ministry of Defence have announced the formation of a new Regiment formed entirely of gay soldiers.

Dr Liam Fox, Secretary of State for Defence, formally announced the move in a press conference earlier today and also confirmed that the regiment's commanding officer would be Brigadier Percy Mincewell, an ex-hairdresser and part-time drag-artist.

The new fighting force, 'The Queens Own Queens', will be formed entirely of 'crack-troops', said Brigadier Mincewell.

'These are men who are prepared to go where others fear to', he continued, 'they are expert at getting to the rear of their target and penetrating the enemy from behind'.

Brigadier Mincewell would not confirm the location of the Regiment's first tour of duty.

'Like any good commander, I have made it my job to get to know my men intimately', he said ' I can confirm that the Regiment will give a good account of itself wherever we are sent. All of the men serving under me are certainly up for it', he concluded.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
