Can I come back please???!!!

#1
Hello all patrons of arrse.

I left the army January this year as a sub Cpl CMT 1 and am regretting the decision! I want to come back (beret in hand!) but am not sure if I would keep my original Rank, Pay scale and Seniority. Im also 31 so dont know if that will be a factor.

Please Advise!

No reason why not - a number of people have been in the same position and come back.

best you do something about it sharpish.

If memory serves me correctly - you have six months from when you left to maintain you pay, rank etc.

I left in 97 and came back in 2000, so you aint the only one to think life was greener only to discover that it wasnt

call the RAMC recruiting team at camberley and ask them - and if they dont know, they are in the right place to find out!

good luck

from personal experience anywhere upto 12 months will see you carry on as though you'd never been away

A guy came back in my reg after two years out. Same sqn, same troop (support). He was only a sapper to begin with so he is back as his original rank. I think he kept his pay increment though.

Apparently they are trying to put people back where they were before they left, to keep everyone happy.

You'll be forced into the new pension though. That is a considerable reduction in benefits over the 75 version (only MPs get more benefits when their pensions are reviewed).

Update......

Ive been to the careers office and all the paperwork has gone to Glasgow. Im now at the mercy of the desk officer.

lots of dudes got out in the early-mid 90's and tried to sign back on when they realised the grass aint always greener. They all got fooked off. Best of luck remember every job has ups n downs

It certainly is Muckster. Nobody said anything about working for a living in civvie street! Ive been waiting five weeks now for news from glasgow and am beginning to get a bit twitchy.

Anyone from MCM Div reading this please advise!
