One in eight soldiers has attacked someone after coming home from fighting.

The Kings Centre for Military Health Research spoke to 13,000 veterans from the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and said they discovered a link between combat and trauma, and violence at home, often directed at their partners.

A third of the victims were someone in the family – often a wife or girlfriend, the study found.

Study author Dr Deirdre MacManus told the BBC: ‘The association between performing a combat role and being exposed to combat, and subsequent violence on return from deployment, is about two-fold.

‘We also saw that soldiers who had seen more than one traumatic event were more likely to report being violent.’

Earlier this month ex-soldier Aaron Wilkinson, 24, was jailed for shooting his landlady dead, just months after he had returned from serving in Afghanistan with the Territorial Army.
