After watching Dispatches: Battle Fatigue on 4 last night, I've been pondering on (sorry, getting well worried about) what would happen if you were injured, if for instance, whilst on a weekend away, annual camp, or on a course outside the UK? Say you broke a leg or hurt your back and couldnât work for a few weeks, would the Army make up for lost earnings and look after you? What if you could never work again? Would you get a pension or payout? If you were deployed in Iraq or somewhere and any of the above happened, or you got wounded, what would happen? As someone who is about to go away for 12 months, should i get personal accident and life insurance if the Army will desert you as they seem to be doing?
