Army officers and police are investigating a spate of attack on soldiers who were on duty covering the Olympics.
They have now told troops on duty for the Paralympics to travel around in groups after servicemen were attacked, verbally abused and harassed during the Olympics.
In the worst incident a lone off-duty soldier was targeted by four men who abused him for being in the Army and then attacked him close to the temporary base where soldiers were housed in east London.
The soldier was not in uniform, but was targeted by the attackers because he was carrying a military bag.
Police are investigating the attack by four Asian men which took place in the early hours of Monday August 6 close to Tower Hill tube station.
