Cavity Search For Sebum Coe
Many of the troops assigned to the Games are Afghan veterans. They will be ordered to carry out rudimentary security work including bag searches at venue entrances.
Commanders are particularly angry about the conditions in which Service personnel are being required to work.
Troops who arrived at Olympic sites this week for security duty were said to have been left without basic facilities including toilets.
One senior military officer said the Olympic work was “demeaning” to Service personnel.
"It is very demeaning that highly professional soldiers and Marines who have served two or three tours of duty in Afghanistan now find themselves doing bog-standard security checks because the Olympic organisers can't get their act together,” he said.
Locog, the organising body for the Games, said: Locog said: "We would be surprised if there are concern being raised about the involvement of military personnel as all parties have signed up to the security plan. The allocation of military personnel was based on clear agreement of their roles and responsibilities."
"all parties have signed up..." apart from the poor bloody grunts who actually have to do the work.
