Army Demands Killed Soldier Pays Back Holiday Refund

by | 27th, October 2011

BECAUSE LCpl Jordan Bancroft was shot dead in Helmland province, Afghanistan ten days before the month’s end he was docked pay.

His parents received letter informing them that  £433 had been overpaid into his account.

The money had been taken out of a £1,493.04 refund for holiday time off not taken.

The Ministry of Defence has since apologised.

Update: Princess Productions has been alerted and is believed to be using the episode in a pilot for a new comedy show
