An ex-soldier has spoken of his feelings of betrayal after he was awarded just GBP 45 per week in compensation after being left traumatised by years of service.
Jason McNally, 39, served as a corporal in Bosnia, Kosovo, Germany and Iraq during a career in the British Army spanning 15 years, the Manchester Chad reports.
The father of three left the forces last year after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, saying that he struggles to maintain a normal life due to the mental scars he bears.
He told the paper: "If a civilian tripped on stone paving in the street they would get a pay out of thousands but we do not even get a lump sum."
Mr McNally believes he has been shunned by defence chiefs, who offered him just GBP 45.72 per week in injury compensation.
His comments follow news that a Royal Marine who fought alongside Prince Harry is appealing the GBP 240,000 injury compensation payout he received after losing an arm and a leg in Afghanistan.
