I'll gladly sign it BUT we will be fighting centuries of government inertia regarding servicemens/womens treatment in both war and peace. Kipling summed it up precisely  
Our men & women are probably some of the bravest and dedicated people but are consistently let down by penny-pinching chinless wonders whose main interest is feathering their own nests and to hell with the rest of us.
This govt. is behaving exactly as the Tory one before WWII did. I mean, what's the point of an Aircraft carrier whose main armament is now a bloody egg-beater.

Ooo! I feel better now   :mrgreen:

As an ex-serviceman (29 years) I agree entirely with the thoughts behind the petition. Signed it straight away.....
