I would appreciate a bit of advice on this one, I believe that I have been wronged severely, and have been advised that, procedurally, I have been deliberately misinformed. A couple of years ago I was the subject of a very hastily conducted AGAI 67 investigation. I will not go into the precise details, but basically an allegation was made against me while I was serving at my Corps Depot. Within 36 hours of the initial accusation I had been removed from post, and notified that I would be posted (my posting order was dated ten days prior to the official AGAI 67 investigation and 14 days prior to the announcement of its findings). Another of many issues was that the Adjt returned my application for a commission to me with a note from the CO to the effect that he could not consider the application in the light of the fact that I had committed an offence under AGAI 67. This was prior to the investigation and award, which, despite all the peripheral effects, was an informal verbal rebuke. Despite the fact that the removal from post and posting was seen by many to be a knee jerk reaction, it caused a great deal of personal stress, disruption and upset to my family, and meant that I went to my new unit under a considerable cloud. I endeavoured to submit a Redress of Grievance at my new unit, but could not redress the award, which was unofficial and did not appear on my file at MCM Div, nor could redress the posting, which, I was informed could be justified by the exigencies of the Service. My question is basically that I requested a copy of my CR book, and was surprised to see the annotation "applicant for a commission" at the top of the relevant CR. I queried this, as this aspiration was only true for a few days, before my application was refused by the CO and returned to me. I was told by MCM Div that they had been notified that I had withdrawn my application. This was not the case at the time, and I have been told subsequently that the CO did not have the right to refuse it, but must either endorse or officially refuse the application, and that an audit trail should be in place. Obviously these things are subjective, but I think that the case was an immediate knee jerk, and that certain steps were taken (removal from post and posting), and that subsequently, when the facts of the case became clear, sense prevailed and the award was negligible and minimal in terms of its impact, ie informal. The longer-term effects have been significant, each of my subsequent COs and OCs have been aware of this issue, and it has been brought up on two subsequent commissioning interviews. I believe, though, that my application for a commission has been intentionally put under the radar, and in such a manner that it allowed the CO not to commit, officially. At the time of application, my predecessor had been commissioned from WO2 from the same post as I occupied, and at the time I was applying with an "O" graded CR, with three previous "O's". I believe that I have been deliberately misinformed at the time of the investigation, and that subsequently, MCM Div have been deliberately misled, to explain the absence of the relevant documentation in the commissioning process. The net result at the time enabled the CO, and Adjt to smokescreen the original hastily-conducted investigation. I want to do something about this via civilian channels now, but it is outside the period permitted for formal redress, despite the fact I have only just discovered the apparent inequity. I'd appreciate a bit of advice, will not refer to any individual in this, and will happily provide further information via PM, if pertinent.
