What job can you walk into on day one of leaving the Army in your new rank and pick up that kind of pay? A minimum of a 2% pay increase on top of the daily rate of a Field marshall, how much does that work out at?
Ive a feeling that this whole 'one rank above field marshall' thing is an urban myth!
Cheers guys, got my veterans badge in the post from MCM the other day, will wear it with pride as much as I can, have to say I have been impressed by Glasgow on the discharge procedure, everything squared away on time (did I just say that!!!)
My parting advice to anyone coming to the end of service is take care of yourself, especially in the last 12 months, it's all about you and don't think anyone will force you into looking after number one. Best of luck.
