The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  5. Obviously I can sympathise with anyone who has an illness related to nuclear testing but I can also understand MODs point of view;

    A lot of these guys (and in some cases their off-spring) are going down with things that people who have never been involved in testing are going down with.
