The following story was brought to my attention by one of my mates of facebook - Story in the Sun I knew Mat, we weren't best mates or anything but he was a good bloke. What are peoples feelings on this story? I understand that rules are rules, but should exceptions be made for people that are killed on ops who've not been serving in rank long enough to qualify for the pension for that rank? Personally I say yes as long as it applies to everyone who's in the same situation. **There is a thread on this in the Gunners forum, but I thought it might reach a wider audience here.
