One of my soldiers (honestly) was caught drink driving roughly a year ago. Whilst never acceptable there were several mitigating factors and he is first rate. He was given and 18 month ban, which could be reduced to 12 months on completion of a drink awareness course. He booked this course and was due to attend last December. However, the Army required the soldier to go to Kenya and he missed his course, although he phoned in advance to say so. The solider has now been told that he cannot do another course as he has missed his window. He has been told he has no right of appeal. Does anyone have knowledge of this situation? It seems unfair that he cannot take another course. I would be very grateful for any advice or a suggestion of who I could call. Have tried Ciitizens' Advice but not much luck. Cheers.
