A coroner has called on the Ministry of Defence to review its care for vulnerable soldiers after he ruled that bullying, the "lingering" mental effects of an alleged rape, "work-related despair" and a romantic break-up were all factors in the death of Anne-Marie Ellement.
Nicholas Rheinberg concluded that she hanged herself at Bulford Barracks in Wiltshire two years after she alleged that two soldiers raped her while she was stationed in Germany.
But Mr Rheinberg said in the inquest that, although the care given to Corporal Ellement in the aftermath of the allegation had been of "high quality", the transfer of information when she returned to the UK had been "unforgivably bad."
