Jo Jukes’ husband Lance Corporal Dave Jukes, 49, took his life in October last year after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and acute depression after serving in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan during his 25-year career.
Speaking exclusively to ITV News, Mrs Jukes said she is set to bring her case against the MOD – which is the first of its kind in the UK – to help protect other veterans and families from enduring the same suffering.
Mrs Jukes’ lawyers believe she has a very strong chance of winning her unprecedented case.
