New MOD 90

an expiry date isn't such a bad thing, it might stop folks 'losing' thier ID for retention (along with the benefits) after they leave the service.

And we don't need to be issued with a new ID every time we are promoted. The rules state that the rank shown on the card must be within one rank of the current substantive rank of the individual.

So if you are promoted acting Cpl for a while, then go back to LCpl, then get substantive Cpl, you would never need to have your card changed. Unless you went from LCpl to Substantive Sgt in less than the five year life of the card (RMP or R Signals Techs?) you wouldn't need a new one.

I feel sorry for the sqn clerks who's workload has doubled as each bloke needs a new ID card every time he's promoted and every 5 years when it expires.
Shurely shome mishtake? Sqn is normally 100 blokes yeah?

If every bloke in the Sqn got a new one every 5 years then that's only 1 x ID card the clerk has to change every 2 - 3 weeks.
Let's be fair and add on the promotions (or being busted if you're 1RHF) and it's still absolute max 1 ID card every 1 - 2 weeks.

Those remfs are getting an easy time as soon as JPA comes in, when they stop handling MMA claims, Leave passes and so on. I hardly think a single ID card every fortnight will break a fingernail. Most of the lazy gits don't do less than a batch anyway, so they'll leave it for a month.

Zero tolerance for clerks.

Beer to the first person who gets checked on the gate to see if his ID is still valid!! Long wait methinks. Changing photos would be good, too many ID cards with photos of 70's porn stars on them

you get a new pic if you supply one when you apply for a new ID card, otherwise they use the same one again.

Why is it every forum somehow ends up as a slagging off for the clerks?? In my experience of a variety of differing cap badges over the past 27 years the attached arms of any description (clerks included) are 99 times out of 100 a dam site more professional than the unit they are supporting! - Leave the clerks alone

I bet thats not the first error you've ever made, but I bet your pay issues dont take months to be resolved.

Nice to know that in your experience clerks do a great job, and you are?

Oh fcuk me, yes, a clerk?

Benefits? What benefits?.........shopping in the NAAFI if you happen to live abroad? I'm serving in Germany and I refuse to use the NAAFI as it still charges more than local shops. I wouldn't bother buying tax free electrical gear from them or SSVC either. I can get it cheaper, tax paid, from Curries back in the UK. Keeping hold of your ID card after your time won't help you with any BFG benefits either.

Steady tiger, steady......... most folk who leave the armed forces happen to reside in the UK, and on production of a service ID card, get discount at a whole host of places.
