What do you mean by "Discharge Papers"?

You just get a letter informing you of your discharge and telling you how to return your kit.. You don't get a P45 or a character report...

Once you're in you can't leave. We need the numbers.

You can have three weekends off a month and 50 weeks off each and every year. Until you're 60.

Resistance is futile.

I got a bit of A4 with 'served from - to' on it and a request for kit back. Given that they'd have incinerated the clothing anyway, I demurred.

Once you’ve signed the correct form...

You will get a P45 and paperwork showing your term of service and qualifications, rank held at time of leaving and medals received.

There will also be errors.

You will need a lot of patience.

I kept getting letters from RHQ about non attendance and handing back of kit 4 years after I had left.

Uniform was knackered as it was used for fishing and the rest of it had been flogged to fill up the beer kitty.

Do you have to go back in to sign the 1033 for it?
