Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. There was an email doing the rounds via RBL regarding the rules about the length of time rank had to be held before death in terms of pension calculations; I think the case that highlighted it was the death of a Sgt in the Grenadiers (sorry, memory gone)? If so, does this mean that when a soldier dies death benefits are now calculated on rank held at death whether actual/ acting? If so this would seem only right.
