IMMEDIATE ATTENTION: All Service Personnel and Veterans who served in Afghanistan
The attached letters from the Chief of the General Staff, the Joint Chiefs and the Permanent Secretary relate to the Independent Inquiry relating to Afghanistan (IIA) which is chaired by the Lord Justice Haddon-Cave and holds the status of a statutory inquiry. It is therefore fully independent of Government and the MOD.
It is vitally important that these documents reach everyone who served in Afghanistan but particularly those who served in the United Kingdom Special Forces in Afghanistan over the period mid-2010 to mid-2013.
Should your service in Afghanistan fall within the prescribed criteria then you are advised to follow the guidance provided within the attached documents. Please also note the availability of welfare and legal support where necessary.
