I was interested to read about the late Jimmy Saville's connections with the British Army.
I didn't realise that he was given a military funeral, despite never having served in the army in any official capacity.
He was also buried with a Royal Marine Beret which he was awarded for some reason.
Savile spent every Christmas with Margaret Thatcher when she was Prime Minister, and his other establishment connections are well known, but what exactly was the attraction to the British Military?
Was he working for them in some capacity?
