Its a strange world but yes, there are still some seniors who dont really understand the local rank system and feel as though they are being dealt a raw deal. Having read through the majority of the topics in this forum it is very apparent that there are quite a few knowledgeable types here and I am hoping they can give me the info I seek, (or at least know someone who can). So to my question, What are the legalities on local rank, ie. how long can you hold it for before another course of action must be taken. I ask this for a very good reason, a colleague of mine recently left the forces after serving 22, however for the last 5 of his 22 he held local. Is this the norm.
