This is because of a change in how SPVA interpret 'relevant service' - they are excluding aggregated AFPS 75 service (following a break) so, although it counts for pension, it does not count for resettlement grant, EDP or redundancy. The definition was interpreted more generously for Tranche 1 which makes it sting even more.

Lots of others in your position are lodging Service Complaints. There is also a legal challenge brewing - barrister handling is at Coffin Mew - Solicitors Southampton, 1000 Lakeside Portsmouth, Gosport | Employment Lawyers Southampton | Fareham.
