A test case is in the High Court pipeline which could have far ranging implications for members of the armed forces who suffer psychological problems after active duty. Five soldiers are set to do battle with the Ministry of Defence in a unique claim for compensation for severe post traumatic stress disorder they say they suffered as a result of fighting in the Falklands War. The men were involved in rescuing badly burned comrades in horrific circumstances from the ship the 'Sir Galahad'. They will accuse the MoD of concealing knowledge of post traumatic stress disorder to avoid the expense and disruption of ensuring their conditions were diagnosed and treated. They claim their treatment by the MoD was inhuman under the European Convention of Human Rights. The court battle on behalf of the soldiers is being spearheaded by Mackenzie Persuad of Southall, Middlesex.
