Hi guys, I need some help here. I have a mate who was in REME and is wanting to rejoin the Army - the only problem is, he's lost his discharge papers, very clever I know, we just need to know how we can get copies?
They are not essential for rejoining. Just go into a Careers office with the approx. dates of leaving and they will send a form to Glasgow. They will respond with the accurate dates from his service record (and whether or not they will accept him back!)
Try this number 01412242571. They'll ask you some questions, etc. You send a fax to them with details they've just asked for and your passport photo page. My papers were sent to me 4-5 weeks later (recorded post as well). Quick for the MOD!!!! Any questions PM me.
