"Sergeant AB, a 39-year-old who has been in the marines since his 20s, loses fight to remain anonymous"
"The Royal Marines have made it clear they will continue to support him. Major General Ed Davis, commandant general of the corps, said: "Our mantra of 'once a marine, always a marine' is not conditional."
His family has said he has their love and backing. But Blackman's military career is over, his anonymity has fallen away and he faces tough years behind bars in a civilian prison."

Franck Beck (sex offender)
"Background and route into social work
"Born in Salisbury, Beck was raised in Thornton Heath, South London, the son of a train driver and the youngest of five children. Leaving secondary modern school without any qualifications, Beck then spent three years working on a farm before suddenly announcing that he was joining the Royal Marines.
Beck spent nine years as a marine, serving in Borneo and Aden and attaining the rank of sergeant. Emerging with an honourable discharge and campaign medals, Beck apparently turned down officer training and chose instead to train as a social worker."
