  1. Hi,

    I Picked up my lance jack in nov 2005 and as far as i knew at the time of promotion the criteria for full screw was:-

    *Have Substansive L/Cpl For One Year
    *Have A CR Recommeding Promotion To Cpl
    *Have Completed The 3 Week JCLM Course

    I attained all this by Nov 2006 but i was unable to be given my rank as i was away etc. In April 2007 The Mighty JPA came an in the criteria changed also adding that i needed to do a 3 day education JCLM course. these were obviously booked up as i was away when the rules changed.

    I have now done the 3 day JCLM so there are absoloutely no quibbles with my promotion whatsoever. My point is, that will my pay get backdated to when i was first eligeable. This would be the case it i was just presented with my rank late, but as the rules changed it will have taken me off the elibility list.

    I'm sorry if this is slightly confusing, but I had a long night and i never been able to spell long words. But I'd appreciate any help
  2. I can't see it happening. You'll be lucky...
