The father of the Fiji soldier who gave birth in Afghanistan says his daughter has heaped shame on his family and the Army.

A furuious Maurice Wallace told The Daily Mail that Lynette Pearce has failed to tell her parents about the baby and that British Army officials "could not be bothered" to contact them.

The 28-year-old Lance Bombardier who is originally from Fiji and had captained the nation's women's football team four years ago gave birth to a baby boy in a surgical theatre at Camp Bastion two days after complaining of severe abdominal cramps.

Mr Wallace, a Police officer by profession said his daughter has shown great disrespect to the Army and the Army has shown great disrespect to their family by not informing them.

He said he only learned yesterday that Pearce was the soldier who gave birth in Afghanistan on the front-line.

 “I’m furious with her because she hasn’t been in touch with us since she had the child and I am livid with all those British officials who had a duty to contact me immediately.”

Wallace said: “How others in the Army will now view her, because I can’t get it out of my mind, with my eldest son also in the Army, that she has shown disrespect to the force.”

“I’m still very, very angry at our treatment by our daughter and the officials. The British Embassy in Fiji could have easily tracked me down but they just haven’t bothered.”

Meanwhile, a specialist paediatric retrieval team, including a midwife, a neonatal nurse and an incubator, was sent to care for Pearce and her son on the flight back to the UK. Mother and baby are now at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and are fine.
