LOCKDOWN flouting squaddies from the Queen’s Grenadier Guards snuck half-a-dozen girls into their barracks for a boozy party – before letting them stay the night.
In shocking video footage that will infuriate Army chiefs, the soldiers are filmed larking around and sinking alcohol with their prohibited guests despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The troops invited the group over for a notorious ‘block party’ at their Lille Barracks in Aldershot, Hants.
The base is home to 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards – the soldiers famous for wearing bearskin hats while guarding Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.
Clips shared by the girls on Snapchat show music pumping throughout the lads’ accommodation block with bottles of vodka, beer and cider scattered around.
‘DISGUSTING TO SEE’
None of the reckless revellers adhere to the government’s strict two-metre social distancing rule, which ministers stress is enforced to save lives and protect the NHS.
In one clip a soldier shows off a pet snake before sticking his middle finger up to the camera.
Another shows a girl dressed in a short skirt twerking while having her bottom slapped by a pal, as the party cheers on.
The first clips were uploaded around 8pm on Wednesday and the last at 3am Thursday.
Pals said two of the girls stayed overnight at barracks before one squaddie boasted to friends he had a threesome.
A source said: “Most of the girls have stayed on the camp before – even though it’s strictly forbidden for soldiers to bring them back.
“But what’s really got people upset this time is that they’re behaving like this during a global health pandemic that has killed thousands of people. It’s disgusting to see.
“Two of the girls stayed overnight and were seen completing their walk of shame off the barracks at about seven in the morning.
“It’s a complete joke. The squaddies and girls have no consideration for anyone but themselves.”

The Army has been poised to step in to ferry oxygen tanks and help with mobile testing as the UK’s death rate spirals.
An Army spokesman said last night: “This behaviour clearly contradicts the discipline the Armed Forces demand of their personnel and undermines the support we provide to health authorities with mobile testing and other tasks across the UK.
“We will look into the incident and deal with the matter accordingly.”
