Hi all just a general interest thing really, Ive now done nearly 12 years on S type engagements. I am a Full screw serving with the REME, four years ago before I signed this S type I aske if I could go tiffy cos if I couldnt I would not sign again. They told me I could so I signed again and did my PAAB. I passed my PAAB, tiffy maths and all criteria in the next three years, came off the ASCLB in October last year, then in November got the crushing news no more S Type engagements so I couldnt go Tiffy and was out the Army. I am fully fit, never been down graded all this and am still being pushed out. The Officers told me on my PAAB if I met the criteria got two SJARs recommending me for tiffy I would get offered at least 6 years residual contract. This is now all gone to the dogs. Can anyone offer me any advice on what to do, I have written to DMA and he has said that the only way S Types can get extended is for operational tour now. I only came back from Afghan last april, why is the Army getting rid of me and keeping unfit soldiers and is there anything I can do. Please help.
