Mrs Hulme was originally refused a full military pension of around £10,600 a year, but after taking the MoD to court twice the decision was quashed. But now the MoD is appealing against the decision again - claiming Mr Hulme was not in service when he died. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/3170512.stm It turns out he was on leave when he was killed in a climbing accident whilst preparing for an joins Army/RAF Exped. Can they refuse a pension on these grounds??
