    British Forces Moral Lowest Among NATO



    Official figures show a dramatic slump in morale among service men and women, especially in the Army.

    The Ministry of Defence's latest Continuous Attitude Survey reveals a sharp downturn in mood in all three services since the Strategic Defence and Security Review.

    Labour says the figures are a "terrible reflection" of the Government's defence policy.

    Across all three services the numbers saying morale is high have fallen from 25% in 2010 to just 15% - a 10-point drop. Those saying that morale is low rose by 17 points from 33% to 50%.

    In the Army, which is losing 20,000 troops, the fall-off is even sharper. The survey reveals that those who believe morale is low has risen 21 points from 24% to 45%.

    British army always prided over high motivation and morale amongst its members !
    The morale seems to have gone down as low as it was during Indian Mutiny !

    I would expect to see morale numbers like this among Syrian Army... not GB! If invaded, will half of them desert?

    Not for soldiers if the war is not going well or long tour of duties.

    I don't think the information is true. The last I heard, the Pommies were running around naked in their barracks in honour of their "Prince."
