Air Corps Officer Dismissed For Insulting Superior

A squadron commander in the Air Corps has been dismissed from the Defence Forces for using insulting language to his superior.

The Military Court heard that the accused, a commissioned officer of 28 years service in the defence forces, called his commanding officer a “little prick” at Casement Aerodrome in Baldonnel last year. It was counter claimed that the phrase used was “this is a little prickly” and was merely misheard.

The military judge described the offence as “near the serious end” of guilty of one charge of using insulting language to a superior officer contrary to Section 133 of the Defence Act 1954. Although this phrase could be misheard as “fuck off and get yer cards now, ye fucking wee luadramaun”.

The dismissed Air Corps Commandant shows no hard feelings after the outcome of his disciplinary hearing
