No mate, since the Brits gave up HK they are no longer included. Here's a list:
The Commonwealth’s 53 member countries span Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Pacific. All members subscribe to the Commonwealth’s values and principles, outlined in the Commonwealth Charter.

Leaders of member countries shape Commonwealth policies and priorities. Every two years, they meet to discuss issues affecting the Commonwealth and the wider world at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. All members have an equal say – regardless of size or economic stature. This ensures even the smallest member countries have a voice in shaping the Commonwealth.

please no... we had a Paki in training, was not a bad guy but got the shit kicked ot him because he was unfit by the Troop Sgt. I think he hated Pakis´ i believe there are some people from those countries in the Brit Army. I just remember Guys from Fiji & Gurkhas. also from Jamaika. Don´t know his story but was our MT Sgt.

Falklands are British territory.
As for the Gurkha, I don't want to make a fool of myself, but I believe it dates back to a long time ago when the Brit's ruled India and the they had an accord with the King of Nepal. I'll quickly look it up and give a post.

A lack of recruits. Hmm....

Not even the rewards of knighthood could persuade the young lads into joining.

Perhaps it's too much risk to be dishonorably discharged over political correctness.

well not even that i spoke to a Guy who i know , who was discharged (Brown enveloped as we said) just before his full pension of 22 years. I met him here in Germany as he was over seeing his ex wife who is German. This they started doing under David Cameron. I was lucky i served 9 years but they added reserve time & will get a 12 year half pension. Anyway the Gurkha Signals were good guys.

I think that much of an reason is money. You doing job more or less dangerous (If you look statistics actually there is many civilian jobs where people losing lives more often) and you have something above minimum wage for it.
Also (at least when you are new) you are working 24/7. Plus all kinds of abdications which you wouldn't have in civilian or even police job.
So there is many things into it. Potential danger is probably one of smaller reasons.

And what percentage of soldiers lost their lives? I think percentage of all soldiers not just ones involved in conflicts.
