Major dismissed for 'cavalier attitude' to top secret papers

#3
Let me get this straight...
His house was searched because someone alleged that he inflated his tales of courage/ leadership. Surely there is some form of cross-checking tales of daring before awards are dished out? Or is there a push for medals- Rourkes Drift Syndrome?

A bit off thread, but whatever he actually did must have pissed off somebody for him to be dismissed. I've seen all sorts of shenanigans over the years, but anyone actually caught was manipulated into resigning rather than being bowler-hatted.

The article said he had over 200 electronic "sensitive documents" ammunition and an inoperable pistol. Maybe they're making an example of him, after all as a major he should know better.

Understood about financial implications but I just assumed that given the nature of his immediate dismissal, he would lose his pension rights. Having thought about it I suspect not now and it makes sense but he's still royally rogered himself for future employment.

He'll keep his pension though?

39 so assuming about 18 year's service?

What's that worth, about 25k pa?

Not even close..... I am working on the assumption he was on increment lvl 9 as a Major (the top band)

try £16,378 with compulsory retirement or £14,983 if a PVR pension (this is going on 18 years service on the dot)
