Goat Demoted for Marching Out of Step
British regimental goat stripped of army rank for marching out of step!
London: A Regimental goat of the British Army has been stripped of his Army Rank and insignia after he tripped out of a parade to mark the Queen’s 80th birthday celebrations.
Lance Corporal William (Billy) Windsor was demoted to fusilier, the equivalent of a private after he was reported for marching out of step during a parade.
Windsor, who was stationed in Cyprus with the First Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers, failed to maintain his line despite handler Lance Corporal Dai Davies’ repeated tugs, reports The Sun.
He was reported for insubordination for acting the goat during the parade and marched into the office of Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Huw James where he was stripped off his rank and marched him out again.
Six year old Windsor, Army serial number 25232301, is a Kashmir goat presented to the battalion by the Queen in 2001.
While an Army spokesman said Windsor was “charged with disobeying a direct order”, a Ministry of Defence said: “It seems like gruff justice”.

I wonder what the offense is for pooping on the Queen's red carpet?
