I have lifted this from a Times article on the Current affairs forum. I was trying to find out what the score is for one of my guys last week. He signed in 2000 and is now on an S type. He is now at the 17 year mark and has been info'd he will be resigning for another three years shortly which would take him to the 21yr mark. I note this isn't the 22yr pensionable mark. Is the system such a bastard that the last year needs justification or can he have his legs cut out from under him by the dear folk at APC? He says he isn't entitled to ren leave. What are the other implications, anyone? Pension, resettlement? Are manning control points still used? If not and their status and legality are as dubious as the article makes out, can a soldier who signed one still challange it? I couldn't get anything out of the RAO.
