A SOLDIER in the Queen’s Household Cavalry punched a pregnant teen in the stomach after boozing, a court heard.
Marc Thomson, 18, hit her so hard she ran to a toilet bleeding.
Thomson claimed it was a playfight but was so drunk he had little memory of the incident at his barracks in Knightsbridge, West London.
He admitted assault and Westminster JPs gave him a community order.
He was also ordered to pay £500 in compensation.
The disgraced soldier will also face disciplinary action at the Hyde Park Barracks where he could expect a punishment of up to 28 days confinement with military training at Colchester.
The baby is thought to have been uninjured.
Thomson’s case is the latest scandal to rock the elite Household Division.
