But I signed up for (and only intend doing) 22years. It's a legal contract. It must be because I went AWOL for a few days in my younger and foolish childhood and was jailed for it. I broke my contract and was punished. Rightly so.
But I did not sign up for 37 years! So can they change the terms of service to those approaching 22 years (2 and a half left)? Surely Not!
You may note that this is the first time I have joined this site (and excellent it is too), but I have NEVER been quite as pi##ed off as I am this evening.
I have stayed in the army as long as I have for one reason and one alone, and that is to be able to collect my pension (or at leat a 1/3 of it) when I leave at 37. As a result, I have missed out on the opportunity to make the move into civi-street at an age when the transition would be slightly easier. How can this buch of idiots get away with this, if indeed the story is true?
We signed a contract and now we are being fu~~ed over by them. There must be a case for legal action here? Failing that, roll on the revolution - Eagle, I'm with you all the way on this one!
