I've got my paperwork in to tranfer from the Artillery to the Infantry. I've been in 4 years and I'm a lance jack. Today I had my interview with my RCMO who said that it would be bad for my career to transfer to the Infantry, partly because of slower promotion and also because of my age, I'm 28 years old. He said that I'll probably lose my rank for approx. 3 years which will probably then put me in a redundancy bracket when Tranche 3 hits. And because of me being older that will put me against younger guys of equal rank who wont be considered for redundancy because they'll be around 10 years younger than me. Anyone got any ideas if this is a fair assessment and I should reconsider or is he just using scare tactics to try and keep me in the Arty?
