UK soldier and veteran suicides 'outstrip Afghan deaths'

Interesting, yet tragic article with an accompanying video:

From the article: More British soldiers and veterans took their own lives in 2012 than died fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan over the same period.

The Afghanistan death toll was 44, of whom 40 died in action. Some of the soldiers' families say the men did not get enough support.

The British government, unlike its American counterpart, does not record the suicide rate among ex-soldiers.
