Is Iain Duncan Smith MP lying about his Army record ?
Forces and ex-forces call these people 'Walts' or 'Walter Mittys ' for lying about a Forces record.
Iain Duncan Smith expects many ex-forces to have to live off £54 per week.
Here we'd like to question 'Bloating Walt' and Tory MP, Iain Duncan Smith's BBC Biography saying he was a captain;
It's similarly reported across a whole range of papers, so look in the
London Gazette and here he becomes a 2nd Lieutenant fresh out of RMA Sandhurst:
Here he gets promoted and put into the Reserves:
And here he gets removed from the Reserves still as a Lieutenantt:
An ex-forces group checked through and can't find any captain promotion for him anywhere.
We think they're maybe right, and on top of him mis-stating his education - we
think he may be all 'Walter Mitty' about his military history too?
