An army captain returned home from an overseas posting to find a giant banner accusing him of having an affair.
Pictures shared on social media show the sign on the side of a house with balloons and the man’s alleged crimes written on a banner.
His scorned wife claimed the Royal Army Medical Corps officer cheated on her with a United Nations official while he was in war-torn Somalia.
The banner reads: “Hello, my name is Captain [surname]. I went on tour to Somalia and had an affair with [name] who works for the UN.”
It adds: “I kicked my wife out of our house and rendered her homeless, unemployed and broken.”
The banner, which features a picture of the soldier in uniform holding a dog, also mocks the Army’s leadership code about integrity being key to an officer’s role.
It says: “I lack moral courage, discipline, respect for others, integrity, loyalty, selfless commitment.”
The couple’s house is believed to be on a married quarters estate in Colchester, Essex.
A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said: “We are aware of a social media post which makes allegations against a service person.
“This matter is under investigation.”
The couple has not been named.
