77th Brigade Officer at the Army’s secret psychological warfare unit (*Against the British Public) ‘pressured veteran who reported his security blunder’

A senior officer (*Less than 3 years in service) at the Army’s secret psychological warfare unit has been ticked off after losing a dozen of his business cards in the street – and then using military police to pressure the veteran who raised the alert.

Lieutenant Colonel Rupert Burridge, a commander in 77th Brigade which is leading efforts to counter Covid-19 disinformation, dropped a pile of cards carrying his office and mobile telephone numbers and his email address earlier this month.

They were spotted on a street in Cottesmore, Rutland, by an Army veteran. Fearing a possible security breach, he picked them up and contacted Alfie Usher, a former soldier who runs the respected military Facebook group Fill Your Boots.

Using the number on the card, Mr Usher contacted Lt Col Burridge and was surprised when the officer initially denied losing the cards and claimed it was a case of mistaken identity.Lieutenant Colonel Rupert Burridge, a commander in 77th Brigade which is leading efforts to counter Covid-19 disinformation, dropped a pile of cards carrying his office and mobile telephone numbers and his email address earlier this month
