The Defence Select Committee has just told us what we already knew. The huge increase in commitments over the last few years is driving soldiers out of the army.
There will, no doubt, be people who say “well they knew what they were letting themselves in for”. If you feel that please remember these people are not leaving because they don’t want to got to war, they are leaving because they are going to war so often they are not seeing their families any more.
I don’t expect the government keeps figures on divorce rates amongst soldiers but I would bet my life savings that there has been a sharp increase over the last few years.
