Fewer than half of soldiers say they'd recommend Army life to a friend. While the Army says it offers a bond that 'lasts a lifetime', many veterans struggle to rebuild the social support networks they need, which leaves them more vulnerable to delayed-onset mental health problems.

Instead of pulling the lad to one side and giving him career advice, perhaps a tale of adventure from the ten years I spent traveling the world having good times, sometimes having traumatic times with my fellow soldiers, I felt I could only offer him some words of warning.

So, who would have thought that little old me #MuslimGirlwiththeSAS, a skinny, Northern girl from Oldham would find a political ally in James Bond?

While much of the commentary on the Chilcot report is on the decision to go to war, it is important not to miss the lessons of Britain's occupation of Southern Iraq.

Who is the real threat to national security? Is it the democratically elected Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn? Or is it the general who has threatened democracy and the freedom of the British people to elect their leaders?
