Chilcot inquiry wants evidence from Iraq war veterans

Sir John Chilcot wants soldiers past and present to have 'their voices heard' on how campaign was run

The Iraq inquiry's chairman today invited British veterans of the conflict to submit their views on how the war was run.

Sir John Chilcot announced there would be a meeting held at Tidworth Garrison in Wiltshire on 14 September for UK military personnel past and present who served in Iraq between 2003 and 2009.

He wrote in an open letter to the veterans: "The purpose of this event is to gain insights from those who are in a unique position to talk about how the campaign was conducted and the impact it had upon their lives.

"This event is an opportunity for you to ensure that your voice is heard and your views feed into the lessons that the inquiry identify." Those who served in Iraq can also make written submissions to the inquiry team.

Enough already - the war has nothing to do with any of the reasons we went in there.
