Troops face a new Battle of the Bulge — with waistlines measuring 55in[/caption]

In the year to April 2021, 11 service personnel — three from the Navy, three from the Army and five in the RAF — had a waist measurement of 55in.

The average British man’s waist size is 37in.

Five were discharged because their weight — which ranged from 17st to 22st — was a problem.

Shock figures obtained by The Sun on Sunday also show 3,000 serving personnel failed tests to check whether they are fit to fight.

The Ministry of Defence said: “Regular and robust fitness testing ensures personnel are physically able to do the job required of them.”
