Is this in keeping with the Amed Forces Covenant

PTSD, Homelessness, Imprisonment and Suicide: Member of Parliament, The Rt Hon Lyn Brown MP, challenged the British Government after watching one of our On Parade episodes featuring one of her East London constituents.

Remembrance Sunday Songs of Praise

Director of the Soldiers' Arts Academy and Christian, On Parades, Shaun Johnson talked to BBC TVs Songs of Praise about the Equality Act and recovery through the arts.

Eddie Conway is making a name for himself “in Civvy Street”. Discharged from the army on medical grounds, his physical wounds are healing but he still suffers the nightmares of combat.

Inevitably he comes across other de-mobbed members of his old “Mob,” who, are suffering from war wounds, both mental and physical. They are the ‘Falling Soldiers,’ struggling with addictions, homelessness and suicidal impulses.

These war damaged veterans begin to look to Eddie, their former sergeant, for leadership but Eddie has got himself involved in a war, on the mean streets of inner London. Can Eddie keep them safe; can they adapt and survive in this new warzone?
