Peter Anthony ‘Ronnie’ O’Sullivan – Brother to Simon, once of The Parachute Regiment (3 Para), of its elite Pathfinders Platoon, a sniper whose military record describes an exemplary professional soldier, but whose life did not go well after the army and ended in February this year.
Served in Afghanistan, twice, Northern Ireland and the Falklands. As a Pathfinder he would have been sent further into enemy territory than any other soldiers and expected to survive for longer in the most dangerous parts of the world. He was also a medic and a tandem skydiving instructor.
Most UK Armed Forces personnel who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan return with psychological injuries.
The majority of Armed Forces personnel deployed do not experience lasting mental wounds as a result of their service. However, around 1 in 25 regulars and 1 in 20 reservists will report symptoms of PTSD following deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan. This is very similar to the rate in the general population.
Furthermore, 1 in 5 Veterans are likely to suffer from a common mental illness – such as depression, anxiety or substance (generally alcohol) misuse – which has been caused or aggravated by their Armed Forces experiences.
