Dear Def Strat-Stat-Health-PQ-FOI (MULTIUSER),

Ref: FOI2019/13295

Many thanks for your reply to my request. Reference number above.

You asked for more clarification below to my specific question:
The Ministry of Defence requires further information in order to determine how to answer your request. In particular we need clarification on what you mean by;

a) “The health and fitness of ‘Armourers’ that have left the RAF since 1997”.
Are you referring to the current health of RAF veteran ‘Armourers’ or are you asking for numbers of ‘Armourers’ who were medically discharged from the UK Armed Forces with knee, neck and/or spine injuries?

What I was asking, was with reference to Armourers who where medically discharged with knee injuries from kneeling down on concrete, under aircraft etc, and Armourers who where medically discharged suffering from bad necks/spine injuries from lifting heavy weights/loads, since 1997, if this information is available please.

I hope this gives you more clarity.

Many thanks
Yours sincerely,

Mr. Glen Johnson
