Walter Mitty is a fictional character in James Thurber's short story "The secret life of Walter Mitty", but to us, Walter Mittys (or Walts) are a pretend War Veteran, serviceman/woman, Security or Emergency Services employee. They benefit from ficticious "service, status and reputation", be it to scam money from charity or falsely impress status in the eyes of "certain females". Walt's could also be any peacetime infantryman or chef, claiming fictitious SAS or Parachute Regiment service, when "truthfully"; the nearest they got to the field was weeding the Guardroom flower pots.
We've all been witness to the growing number of Walter Mitty's over the past years, and avidly following the sad characters on social networking websites such as Facebook and Arrse. We've joined groups and "outed" the best of them, whilst pitying their sad existence and pretence.
For some, it's become an addiction. We've formed numerous "outing" groups, seen numerous quarrels and false allegations. To cure these we've even got our own website to protect this Walt Hunting Community, it's data and information, and the subjects of the organisation's ongoing investigations. We have our own Walt petition to persuade UK Government and Politicians change the law to make Walting illegal.
We urge you to join in with the hunt, and help us to "out the Walt" these FAKE War Veterans and Emergency Service personnel?
These Walts are everywhere:
Walts are idiots! They really are! We've even caught them red handed in "some" anti-Walts pages of Facebook!
Hence we urge the REAL "Anti-Walt Community" to join the Walter Mitty Hunt - it's TOTALLY FREE. Simply use the "Sign in with Facebook" buttons, and it'll register and confirm you using the name and email address from your Facebook profile.
