Compensation boost for severely injured troops

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From today's Sunday Telegraph. Not a formal Government announcement, and changes to the AFCS would need subordinate legislation, but a step in the right direction.

    Full article
  2. Its a start, but not enough.

    Is it too much to ask to be treated the same as all other UK citizens when it comes to compensation for injuries sustained?
  3. Why oh why oh why oh why are damaged soldiers only worth 200,000 /600,000 and a damaged civvie 2 the General known as being a master of understatement?

    The move was disclosed to this newspaper by General Sir David Richards, the Army's second most senior officer, who said that the Government "shares the view that the compensation package is not quite right".

    Wonder whether he might murmur 'not quite right' if his paymasters screw up his pension.....god give me strength!!!!
  4. For those who don't already know General Richards is an ARRSER.
