A friend of mine was medically discharged from the regs with a blood disorder. They received a medical and war pension based on length of service and a having completed a tour of duty. They were classed as 30% disabled.
6 years later and the blood disorder has gone.
They would like to join the local TA unit.
They spoke to a recruitment officer who explained that if their doctor classed them as fit, with no disability they could re-enlist; but their query is this;
If they re-enlist, do they lose their war and medical pension?
Your 'friend' will not be allowed to rejoin - if they were medically discharged, then they are P8 i.e. permanently unfit for military service. I am P7 and the only reason that this is the case is because I am still serving. If I were attempting to join/re-join, I too would be an automatic P8.
