Soldiers to be told they’re discharged while still deployed
Some serving soldiers are likely to have to leave under the manning control points programme, the Ministry of Defence said.
She said: “The Army is close to being fully manned for the first time in some years. To ensure that there is the right balance of soldiers for current operations, a small number could be required to leave under the manning control points.”
Those chosen to go could be identified while serving on the frontline, but it is understood that the process of discharging them would not start until they had returned to Britain.
