Subject: 2000 UK soldiers quit in 2 months
YelliChink    8/1/2010 1:36:42 PM Army crisis as 2,000 soldiers quit in just two months EXCLUSIVE by Kate Mansey 1/08/2010 The Army faces a manpower crisis as thousands of soldiers quit amid some of the bloodiest fighting yet in Afghanistan. More than 2,000 left in April and May alone, about one in 50 of the fighting force. But just 660 recruits were taken on to replace them, the latest figures reveal. Defence sources say battle-weary troops, many just back from fighting the Taliban, are leaving the Army rather than signing up to return. =========================== What is the ratio of muslim soldiers in UK armed forces?
