This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of risk-taking behaviours among UK reservists. The risk-taking behaviours of reservists mirrored those of regulars which included post-deployment hazardous drinking and risky driving.
Deploying in a combat role negatively impacts risk-taking behaviours, such as drinking, smoking and risky driving in regular UK military personnel. Little is known about the impact of deployment on the risk-taking behaviours of reservists.
