Manning Stats any ideas?

Short question, Does the following stat sound accurate, and any links or sources.

1982 - MoD civil servants: Military personnel 1:11
2007 - MoD civil servants: Military personnel 1:1 1/2

Not including any reserves.

Lazy reseach I know, but research none the less.
If it is, its obvious the reason why - todays military personnel need more looking after. I blame it on those pinko liberal parents in the 70s and 80s who listened to the bullshit about letting the little luvvies express themselves rather than instill some discipline.
