Aldershot Sgt Jailed Over Machete Attack
An Army colour sergeant is starting an eight year jail term after a "horrifying" machete attack.
39-year-old John Norwood, of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards targetted a fellow soldier at Mons barracks in Aldershot in July last year.
Sentencing him, Judge James Townsend said he took into account the defendant's ``exemplary'' service in the Army, and added:
``The injury suffered was a horrific one and caused him long-term distress and may lead to his discharge or movement in the Army.''
The court was also told that Norwood was jailed for two years in March 2000 for three counts of wounding following a pub fight in Burnley.
Alistair Wright, defending, said that Norwood had written a letter to the judge expressing his regret for the barracks attack.
He added: ``This is a loss to the Army and through that a loss to the rest of us because, but for these events, this is someone you would want looking after your country.''
