What's going on? I know it's only the Sun, but the smoke & fire rule presumably applies. Are sick chits issued on demand these days? http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/campaigns/our_boys/1849647/1-in-6-soldiers-too-sick-to-fight.html Edited to add: I've just had a dreadful thought. How many of the 'Limp, lame and lazy' (as they were called in my day), the 1 in 6 Bayonets, are actually chaps who've been wounded in action?
