    Hi Guys,

    Following received from Brian Cushion. I would be grateful if you would give this worthy cause your consideration:

    Rank and Pension of Soldiers Killed on Active Service | Petition of Soldiers Pensions

    Hi all. PLEASE can you all sign this petition for soldiers pensions at the above link and pass it on to all of your friends and families. For those of you who don't know, Sergeant Matty Telford was killed 3rd Nov 2009 by a rogue Afghan Policeman. Now, you will all remember him from the news as Sergeant Matty Telford but the army give his children his pension at Corporal rate because he was a Sergeant for less than a year. The unfairness of this is that he was promoted so he could do this job in Afghanistan and had he not been promoted he would have been doing a different job and may have been with us today. After this petition was started it came to light that this is happening to a lot of our soldiers' families.

    If a soldier was being paid as a sergeant when he was killed, then it seems to me that that should be the basis for his widow's pension.

    If you agree, please sign.

    (In signing the petition you will not be expressing a political opinion on any of the conflicts our servicemen are dispatched to.)
