An Iraqi-born yob who spat on a World War II hero's medals on Remembrance Day yesterday escaped jail.
Serwan Abdullah, 23, targeted Timothy House while he was wearing his late grandfathers honours after a commemorative parade.
Mr House, 44, who was recovering from a broken hip and was also looking after a 91-year-old wheelchair-bound veteran when the attack happened, said he was left outraged and very angry.
Abdullah showed no remorse and told officers he had done nothing wrong adding: F*** him and f*** his medals.
The medals Mr House was wearing were awarded to former paratrooper Company Sgt Major Steadman who fought at Dunkirk and in North Africa.
During an illustrious career he was awarded an array of medals including the Palestine Medal, The Africa Star, The Italy Star and the 1939-1945 Star.
In a statement read at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court yesterday, Mr House said: This is one of the most important days of the year for me because my grandfather fought in Word War II.
Since he died in 1991 I have always worn his medals for him. I have been attending Remembrance Day parades for as long as I can remember.
Falklands veteran Chris Purcell, a parade martial with the Royal British Legion in Portsmouth, described Abdullah's actions as 'despicable.
The 50-year-old former petty officer said: To spit on the medals of a man who fought for our country is disgusting. It's a huge insult.
Everyone in this country should be able to wear their medals and the medals of their relatives with pride.

String the little bastard up.
Commonplace in the UK...
Coming soon to a USA near us......
He can spit on my medals, but first he needs to agree to some alone time with me... for a friendly history lesson of course.
Its time for another crusade
yep , just shoot um . No mercy
Coming soon to a neighborhood near you, though I think it’ll have a somewhat different result for the Jihadi.
Nope.. stuff him in a barrel of Pig Fat.
OK, then string him up.
If he spits on my ribbons or medals I’d eviscerate him.
It would be considered “assault with bodily fluids” or some such legalese in this country to dress it up for polite company ... and it is indefensible no matter what!
It might be too late for the Brits to take their country back but they had better start trying.
Obviously this young man was just sharing his culture while these old fashioned, no doubt White, racist, war mongers tried to suppress his right of free speech./s
Probably just ticked that his side didn’t win.
Hey Britain: Still feeling compassionate for those people that you want to import more of them?
Multiculturalism is great
Multiculturalism is great
Just say it enough times and it might become true.
Acute lead poisoning?
They do seem to be suffering from a deficiency of testosterone.
Serwan Abdullah, 23,
Let me guess: A loving Christian? s/
Baby-boomers created this foolish world.
Ain’t diversity grand?
It’s England. They don’t have the backbone to look at him cross-eyed.
