War Hero Discovers Himself in A Computer Game

It’s not every day you discover yourself explicitly recreated in a war game, but that’s exactly what happened to Lt Col Andy Harrison: 

 The decorated officer’s “avatar” stands in full British Army uniform, with body armour and an SA80 rifle in the game, which is set in the fictional war-torn country of Takistan.

The computer figure greets interactive players, saying: “Hello I am Andy ­Harrison of 2 Para, welcome to Takistan.”

The British Army has declared the personal emulation a breach of intellectual property rights.
