If you, or a member of your family, has served in the UK armed forces, then you are probably familiar with the MOD crest.
The crest represents the navy, army and air force and is cherished by the wider armed forces community and its many, many supporters.
But when a veteran was spotted on a train wearing a facemask with the emblem of the armed forces on it, someone decided to take it upon themself to label the mask as “racist” and “offensive”.
Shocked, the veteran pointed out to the member of the public that the emblem on the mask represents the UK armed forces.
But the professional moaner was not impressed and so complained to the guard on the train.
The veteran then had to explain to the guard that the emblem represents the armed forces and that ‘race’ has got nothing to do with the design – after all, the UK armed forces proudly has men and women serving who come from all backgrounds.
In a post on social media, the veteran said:
“Just had someone kicking off at me and then the conductor on the train that my face mask is racist and offensive.
“I explained to the conductor about the design, and he’s okay with it.
“he told the little snot to clam down or he will have to put them off at the next station.”
Thankfully, the guard on the train sided with common sense and told the professional moaner who had complained about the veteran to ‘wind his neck in’ – so to speak.
Has the world gone crazy? Are veterans now not allowed to be proud of their service!?
