Military inquest petition, please sign and circulate

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. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to hasten the
    time it is taking the Oxfordshire coroner to complete the
    inquests into military deaths.

    Bereaved families are having to wait for years for the
    Oxfordshire Coroners Office to hold inquests into military
    deaths. Ms Harman admitted that the situation was
    "unacceptable" yet there are 106 military cases to deal with.

    In order to stop the morale of the services sinking lower I
    urge the Prime Minster to ask The Minister of State, Department
    for Constitutional Affairs to intervene and hasten these inquests.

    Please take the time to sign the petition, for the sake of all the families of Service men and women whose lives have been lost in the name of this Government.

    This petition was initiated by the father of of of the Nimrod crew lost on Op Herrick - at this time he has no idea when the inquest will take place. What kind of message does the Government send out by treating the loss of Service people in this way?
