Major Charged with Keeping a Secret Stash at Home

In England, the Yorkshire Post reports that Major Robert Armstrong appeared at Bulford Military Court, in Wiltshire, Monday charged with four counts of conduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline.  Armstrong is an Army officer decorated for his bravery in Afghanistan.  He allegedly kept top secret documents at his home.  Armstrong had kept the files, which fell under the Official Secrets Act, on a storage device and used them on his personal laptop.  Evidence was also presented that a weapon and a cache of ammunition were also found at Armstrong's home.  The trial continues this week.
