ticking timebomb

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. This was discussed on my last visit to HoC. Andrew Murrison MP and Nick Harvey MP both said this was an area that needs more investigation done… Strangely this report has just come out.

    Soldiers' children face 'ticking timebomb' of problems - says charity
    The emotional, psychological and financial problems faced by children of armed forces serving in Iraq or Afghanistan are not being adequately addressed - report finds

  2. Sadly the MoD have a record of treating servicemen as disposable assets, the problem is multiplied when they become ex-servicemen.

    Fantastic service charities step in, but they often have limited resources. Somehow I just cannot see the MoD being too interested in Forces children.

    As an example look how woefully the British Nuclear Test Veterans have been treated.
