Ministry of Defence chiefs face embarrassment after a picture of a combat soldier wearing equipment bearing a racially offensive remark was printed in its official magazine.

The image published in Soldier magazine shows his left legpad with the words ‘Get some Paki’ scrawled on it.

Officials airbrushed the online version, but the 90,000 printed copies had already been put on sale, with 70,000 sent to serving British troops – many in Afghanistan.

The picture was printed in January’s edition alongside an article about new rations packs for troops.
