It is gratifying that the two young officers facing court martial in Bulford over the death of three soldiers in Wales have been acquitted.
The tragic accident, that took place in 2013 when I was working as head of Defence Training Capability, shocked everyone in the Army.
We all have the utmost sympathy for the grieving families, but there have been too many recent cases of lawyers chasing soldiers doing their best for Queen and Country. The Army must be allowed to maintain demanding tests for soldiers hoping to serve in elite units. In the long term, this will save lives on the future battlefield.
