Thousands of British Army soldiers quit the army as morale hits historic low
The shocking figure represents almost one in five of the 83,340 soldiers serving and is thought to be the greatest single fall in 20 years.
According to official Ministry of Defence figures only 1,759 of the 15,325 regular troops to have left in the year leading to November did so because their time was up.
Nearly half – 7,439 – quit early, exceeding the 7,260 who left the Armed Forces during the previous year. There are now concerns that worsening conditions and a lack of “operational tempo” is failing to keep soldiers motivated.
The situation was exacerbated by 3,325 who were sacked on disciplinary grounds. A further 2,337 were “medically discharged”.

“By its own admission the Army is 3,000 troops down,” he said.
Meanwhile, more than 800 UK troops are set to deploy to Estonia with Nato as part of one of

Good to hear, there may be some hope yet. No young White man anywhere should sign up to be one of ZOG's golem mercenary green niggers.
