From Feb - Aug 1997 I went to Northern Ireland with the Welsh Guards. After a couple of weeks at Bessbrook Mill I was told that there had been a mistake, and that I was supposed to be one of HQNI's pool chefs. I didn't really mind, as the only thing this really affected was the fact that I would have to move around the province for the duration of my tour, and extend the length of my tour by about a month. A couple of months later I was given a docs printout to sign by my clerk, asking me to annotate and correct any incorrect details. On the form it stated that I had served in NI from Mar - May 1997, so I corrected it, handed it back and thought nothing of it. Years later, I've received another printout. Yes, you guessed it, the details remain the same. I asked my clerk if he can change it, and he said he'd look into it. How likely is it that he'll be able to rectify this? Would the unit I served with (Welsh Guards) or my parent unit (KRH) still have this on record? If this was details of a NATO tour I wouldn't be arrsed, but this is the only thing standing in the way of me qualifying for an ACSM, so naturally I feel a bit cheated. Any knowledgeable posts would be appreciated. I should also make it clear that I'm not slagging off the clerk in question, he's a cracking bloke and extremely helpful. It's just that he's not long out the factory and I'm not sure he'll be able to pursue this as thoroughly or as effectively as I'd like him to.
