Two serving members of the British Army have been charged with firearms offences including conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition, the Metropolitan Police said.

Kirtland Gill, 40, and Rajon Graham, 32, both of Berkshire, were charged following an investigation by the Met’s Flying Squad and both have been bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 1 July.

Gill has been charged with one count of conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition and one count of possession of a prohibited weapon (an imitation firearm capable of discharging noxious liquid).

Graham has been charged with one count of conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition and four counts of selling or transferring ammunition.

Upon their arrest in January, The Sun reported that Kirtland Gill was the most senior enlisted soldier in the crack Coldstream Guards.
