Petition - Please sign

Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by Taffnp, Feb 12, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sergeant Matthew Telford of the Grenadier Guards was promoted to the rank in June 2009

    In November of that same year, Sergeant Telford was one of 5 British soldiers killed when a rogue Afghan policeman opened fire on them.

    His wife and family will only receive a Corporal's pension since he only held his rank of Sergeant for less than a year.However, he was killed on operations by the enemy whilst wearing three stripes of a Sergeant on active service.

    Please sign the petition below to support a change in the rules that deny a hero's widow the pension she deserves.
