Royal Navy Operator Arthur Bachelor has given a rather bemusing account of his ordeal at the hands of his Iranian captors. According to Bachelor, one of the more difficult moments led him to sob. Torture? Cruel and inhumane treatment? Waterboarding? Sodomy? Exhaustion from table tennis?
No. As it turns out, the cruel blow by the Iranian captors was to refer to Bachelor as Mr Bean. Apparently, Bachelor didn’t see the humour in it.
