Well well well...

When I wrote Roses in December I was worried that Nat's experiences, and particularly the implied criticism of the care he received from the army, might be a bit over the top. Imagine my surprise (and relief!) to see this article from the BBC today, saying that many traumatised soldiers are going AWOL rather than put up with the lack of care the army provides.

It's rather sad that the situation doesn't seem to have improved any in the 2-3 years since I wrote the book, but I do feel Nat's been vindicated.
