This week we have exposed what is fast becoming Britain’s dirty little secret.
I sat down with one of the lawyers representing over 200 servicemen and women who have had to turn to the private sector for legal and pastoral support which should have been provided, with bells on, by the MoD.
She cannot breach client confidentiality; I will not pressure anyone I know going through this hell to speak out. So I asked her for some themes from her statements.
Some I knew. Threatening arrest, no cautions given, interviewing current colleagues of whom many were not in the Army at the time of the incidents, yet alone served in Iraq.
