Why are people always on this site looking for mitigation templates? Your post already explains the original circumstances of your ineligibility and also eloquently expresses regret, if I were you I would just copy & paste it and send that off.
Oh thats not fair and puts a blemish on my 23 years of immaculate service.........btw initiations, 48 hour drinking sessions in Holland and going in the bath in Mon Cherives(probably spelt wrong as was too p*ssed) in Berlin don't count as anything pre 1990 is excempt.
Has anyone got a decent letter of mitigation I could get a copy of to change to my needs for the LS&GC please? I qualified a few years back but as I was a naughty 18 yr old, getting smashed and robbing some Regtl regalia, which was obviously hilarious at the time, this has come back to bite me on the ar*e! Anything is welcome, cheers.
Only the one charge in my whole career, bad enough for me to be LS & GC (exempt) though.
Remember the Chief Clerk at 5 Armd saying to me "I can ask the OC if he will mitigate it for you". My reply was "Dont bother as he will only tell you to tell me to f*ck off". Off he went to the O.C.'s office, all you can hear down the corridor is "Tell him to f*ck off" Job done. If you do the crime, you have to accept you will do the time - that's life.
nothing wrong with trying a plea of mitigation, in my experience though REME is not so forgiving as other cap badges. Having said that, having an LS&GC in some of the infantry regiments is the sign of a cissy.
Try getting your OC or even CO to lend support - if you are a senior have a chat with the adj and ask their advice.
