The hunt to find Britain’s Worst Forces Snorer by Helps Stop Snoring, makers of the UK’s first natural snoring remedies

Britain’s Worst Forces Snorer is Revealed

Flight Lieutenant Russell Cripps has been named Britain’s Worst Forces Snorer by Helps Stop Snoring, makers of the UK’s first natural snoring remedies.

Russell, a Chinook helicopter pilot based at MOD Boscombe Down in Salisbury, a centre of excellence for flight test and evaluation, was nominated for the title by his work colleague, Squadron Leader Phil Wadlow, who has had to endure countless sleepless nights on several training courses and deployments around the world during their time together on Chinooks.

The family and friends of the noisiest snorers in the UK’s armed forces were asked to nominate their groaning comrades to represent their unit in a bid to find the British Forces’ worst culprit, after the company received a letter from a soldier desperate for a snoring cure.

Helps Stop Snoring received 63 entries from spouses, family members, friends and fellow servicemen and women across the country, and is donating £150 to charities, Help for Heroes and The Big Salute.

Graham Carr-Smith, of Helps Stop Snoring, said: “With 15 million of the UK population believed to be snorers, quarters on land and sea are awash with night-time nuisances who are keeping their comrades awake, as proven by the number of entries we have received. I am delighted to name Russell Britain’s Worst Forces Snorer.

I’m also extremely pleased to take this opportunity to support such worthwhile causes as Help for Heroes and The Big Salute, who help the brave individuals who have been wounded in Britain's current conflicts.

Russell will receive a year’s supply of complimentary anti snoring product to help him and his fellow servicemen and women enjoy a peaceful night of snoring relief.

Graham added: “Our armed forces are on the frontline when it comes to representing the UK at home and abroad – it’s vital they get a good night’s sleep. Finding a good stop snoring remedy is vital for Russell and his colleagues.”
