I hope you good good people can advise me? A very good friend of mine has just joined his local county, and has been told by the CEO that an instructor with previous military experience within 5 years of joining the ACF will start life (after being a PI) as a Staff Sergeant Instructor. This does not happen in my County, as far as I'm aware. I know it makes feck all difference, but I was curious. Could this be a county initiative, or is it in the 'Rule Book'?
