My own vote goes to Trooper James Wharton of the Household Cavalry. He appeared on the cover of Soldier magazine (the house journal of the British Army) last year, in a bid to combat the taboo against gay people that remains in many parts of the armed forces. But things are changing - for when Trooper Wharton got married in March, the reception was held at the Household Cavalry's Knightsbridge barracks in London.
