Quiet satisfaction

The photos were fake, but the story wasn't. Soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment will be charged next week in relation to the death of Baha Mousa, and other charges are pending. Due to the severity of the crimes, the cases are likely to be dealt with in a civilian court rather than a military court-martial.

So much for the regiment's "quiet satisfaction" that its honour had been restored...
