Just received a replacement AF B108

it is relevant if you lost it then tough

as you state you didnt like your 108 so was this a vain attempt in getting it re-written by your last unit?

This would have been my first port of call.

I recently had a need to contact the Personnel Centre to get hold of a copy of my Certificate of Service, AF B108.

It duly arrives, after four weeks of waiting, and to be honest I am sadly disappointed.

1. My name is shown incorrectly.

2. My trade is shown incorrectly.

3. The document itself is a black and white laser print that could have been produced by my 6 year old using Microsoft Word.
What were you expecting - gold leaf embossed paper? :p

My 108 A+B are typed, therefore probably not anything to do with the data protection, 108X & 108B were both stamped by APC.

Just out of interest, what did you get on the military conduct section?

You can write off to the MoD and request copies of everything they have on you - I did it when I left, tonnes of stuff - all my docs from initial notes and interviews at the local careers office, basic training, transferring Corps, all reg units and overseas service, additional training & courses, docs from charges, op tour stuff, resettlement and everything up to my transfer to the reserve. It better than looking through your diary.

You could do what an ex-IG mate did.

He simply 'edited' and inserted a few things he felt should have been there. He's in the British transport Police now!

Civvy HR won't know the difference.

But that would be dishonest! :p (Now where's mine and is the scanner working?)

@CC_TA, when I spoke with the Dept. manager at Personnel I mentioned that the document was open to very easy forgery. She agreed and said it often is.
See my previous post. You could have saved yourself the phone call :D

Good luck and I hope they get it right now.

W_O_T_W, I certainly hope they get it right now too.

Your BTP mate mentioned in your previous post. Why did he bother? No course he did in the Mil. will be of any official use to him in BTP, nor will his rank. All they would care about are dates of service and whether he was booted out or not.

Cheers Chaps.
Unfortunately, nowadays, dear, it really is just a piece of paper. No Red Books, no fancy stuff. Just "Cpl Blahdy Blah" did this that the other, saved 17 lives in a freak yachting accident etc. etc.

Unless of course you know someone really nice within the Cbt HR Spec thingy that they call us now and again and again, but that would never happen, we are all nasty.
