This is the Midland soldier whose war "trophy" photos led to the conviction of two of his British Army colleagues for their roles in a shocking prisoner abuse scandal in Iraq.
Fusilier Gary Bartlam inadvertently alerted the world to what had gone on at Camp Bread Basket, in Basra, when he took the photographs for processing at a shop in his home town of Tamworth.
Appalled by the images from what was later branded "Britain's Abu Ghraib", staff alerted police and Bartlam was arrested.
Yesterday, it was revealed he had been sentenced to be detained at a youth-detention facility for 18 months and disgracefully discharged from the Army.
The sentence - an order banning its publication was lifted yesterday - was handed out at a separate court martial last month in Hohne, Germany, when Bartlam pleaded guilty to taking the photo-graphs of the Iraqis simulating oral and anal sex.
Sentencing the 20 year-old, Judge Advocate Michael Hunter said his actions and those of others involved in the abuse had jeopardised the lives of British soldiers in Iraq and increased the risk of terrorist attacks in Britain.
"Anyone with a shred of human decency would be revolted by what is contained in those pictures," said the judge. "The actions of you and those responsible for these acts have undoubtedly tarnished the international reputation of the British Army and, to some extent, the British nation too, and it will no doubt hamper the efforts of those who are now risking their lives striving to achieve stability in the Gulf region, and it will probably be used by those who are working against such ends."
Bartlam, described as a "complete nutter" who liked violence, had been due to stand trial alongside three other soldiers from the Milan Platoon of the 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
He had faced four serious accusations, including indecent assault which carried a jail sentence of up to ten years, but agreed to give prosecution evidence in return for the charges against him being dropped.
According to his codefendants, who accused him of betrayal, he "offered up their scalps in order to save his own skin". The full details of Bartram's involvement in the scandal emerged yesterday as a court martial in Osnabruck, Germany, found Corporal Daniel Kenyon (33) and Lance Corporal Mark Cooley (25), both from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, guilty of taking part in the mistreatment of captured looters at the aid camp in Basra in May 2003. Lance Corporal Darren Larkin (30), from Oldham, Greater Manchester, was on trial in Osnabruck with Kenyon and Cooley but changed his plea to admit a charge of assault.
All three are due to be sentenced tomorrow. The abuse came to light when Bartram went into the Max Spielmann photographic shop in Tam-worth on May 23 2003 and handed over a roll of film containing disturbing images of the sexual humiliation of naked Iraqi men.
Shop assistant Emma Louise Blackie was so appalled by what she saw that she called civilian police and Bartlam was arrested and charged.
Joseph Giret, whoet, who represented Kenyon, claimed Bartlam was the real villain, saying: "You were from start to finish in the events at Camp Bread Basket the prime mover in the utterly disgusting treatment of Iraqi men."
