His reaction is completely warranted if they used his face without permission

Snowflake is a common name used for very weak individuals if he quit his job - "killing anyone armed or unarmed for a minimum wage" because of a picture in an ad, he shouldn't be there in the first place. Can you imagine someone like that gunning herd of panicking women and children without a hesitation?
Because that’s what the British army do.....

It's almost like the army wants to lose all future wars

I don't think they should have used him as a poster boy without his permission. It's good they used actual army personnel, but definitely should have consulted them on it first.

This is one of a series of posters including phone zombies for their focus, binge gamers for their drive, me me me millieniums for their self belief ... and others. The campaign is part of a recruiting campaign by C(r)apita for which they’ve been paid £450M. 🤨🥴 Serving soldiers are keen to help. They’ve suggested “Jihadis returning home for their combat experience” and “daily masturbaters for their strong right arms”. Other examples are probably inappropriate for a forum like this. 🙄Oh and Capita are failing miserably to hit their targets. 😡

The Army has been doing a rather good job of demonstrating how not to run recruitment campaigns over the last few years.

The Royal Marines cocked it up 10-15 years ago too with their "99.9% of men need not apply" ad where then barely anyone joined up.
Except it's not the Army running the campaign. It's MoD - C(r)apita have been given a £450M contract to increase recruitment - and are failing spectacularly. And we can see why!!

As for the RM campaign it was badly advised. It should have been about more like 80%. And some of the 20% won't hack it. Including Prince Edward.
