Former Army commanders have criticised a new £1.6million diversity campaign telling new recruits it is OK to cry, have feelings and pray.
Military officials have launched a series of YouTube videos to encourage recruits from different backgrounds, genders, sexualities and faiths.
The scheme, which will see a series of adverts broadcast on television, radio and digital platforms, is titled 'This Is Belonging 2018'.
But Colonel Richard Kemp, who led British troops in Afghanistan, claimed today that it shows how the Army 'is being forced down a route of political correctness'.
And retired Army officer Major General Tim Cross said it is important for people to know 'we are not going to be soft and we are not going to be nice to people'.
The drive includes a series of animations on social media, among them films that ask: 'Can I be gay in the Army?' and 'What if I get emotional in the Army?'.
Other videos ask: 'Can I practise my faith in the Army?', 'Will I be listened to in the Army?' and 'Do I have to be a superhero to join the Army?'.'
