It varies depending on the mission. The actual answer would not be easy to find, as this is sensitive information.

Yes and no. All military personnel from any country are given basic training as combatants in case they need it, and on a few occasions they have needed it, but only a percent…age of any military organization find themselves at "the sharp end." The rest of them do maintenance, push pencils, and load trucks, planes, ships, which allows those at "the sharp end" to have what they need to fight. * In the US military, Quakers and other conscientious objectors have abstained from combat, but they have served as medics and other non-combat personnel.
As of November 2011 the numbers are this: Army - 109,520 (Regular) + 33,100 (TA soldiers) RAF - 41,330 (Regular) + 1500 (Volunteer Reserves) Royal Navy - 36,640 (Regular) +… 2,300 (Volunteer Reserves) The SDSR (The Strategic Defense and Security Review) are affecting the number in the British Military at the moment, so they will be decreased to this by 2015: Army - 95000 + 35000 TA soldiers RAF - 33000 Royal Navy - 30000

For instance, the American Civil War had roughly… ten soldiers for every single support unit. World War One featured about three support staff for every ten soldiers. In Vietnam, the average support to combat ratio was 1:2. Today, that ratio suffers as a result of cutbacks and layoffs, but ranges anywhere from 20:1 to 50:1.
