The MoD states this “final tranche will only consist of up to 1,505 personnel. This will include a maximum of 1,425 soldiers, 10 medical officers from the Royal Navy and 70 medical personnel from the RAF.”
The MoD has also stated that those selected for redundancy will have a robust resettlement package and a tax-free payment to “help make their transition to civilian life as smooth as possible.”
