Have just stumbled over this site so thought I'd pitch in and ask for some views. I am an Infantry soldier serving in the Brittish Army in a Scottish regiment. I have recently been diagnoised with severe kidney failure which came froma rare blood disorder called "vascalites". This condition is not genetic, so I assume that i caught/contracted this through my Army service.
I have been deployed to both Gulf wars (1991/2003) and other operational areas, had numerous jags, exposed to burning oil fields, buildings, chemicals etc etc.
Since I've only ever worked for the Army(28years) I'am holding them responsible for my condition.
I would welcome any comments
