Tracy Dykes, Gemma Hughes, Sarah Harris and Joanne Young -v- MOD


Paul was instructed as Lead Counsel in a series of test cases concerning the development of pelvic stress injuries sustained by female recruits at RAF Halton during basic training.

Female recruits were more vulnerable to overloading during physical exercise and in particular competing and marching with male recruits.  The RAF at the time had a gender equality approach to basic training with marching and exercises performed in mixed male/female flights.  The chosen test cases have been settled on a confidential basis.
