I have just completed the process of transferring from the Signals to the Medics. My CR, had i stayed in the Signals is probably good enough to get me promoted. The board sits whilst I am still training to be a medic so I am wondering if I get promoted off the Signals board, would I still get to wear the tapes as a Medic or should I just expect to be in the rank I am for a longer time? I asked my 2i/c before I left the Signals about this and was told that if i get promoted it would be because I have done something to deserve it and not because i have done the relevant courses so the promotion should stand. Just wondering if anyone has heard of people still keeping a promotion even when they have transfered to a different Corps? I still may not even come off the board at all, but still curiosity killed the cat and all that.
