And admin discharges, discipline discharges, compassionate discharges and guys who have signed off applying to leave early because they have a job set up.
To be honest I always said even if i won the lottery i would still serve my time, however having been bummed over they can poke it and if they are mad enough to offer redundancies i would snap their arms off.
I have worked my way through my redundancy folder (why can I find something that was archived 15 years ago but can't find my thermos flask that I last used in October????) and found that the offer wasn't much!
I had 19 years of service at that point (1994). By the looks of it, the Army told me that I would be entitled to my earned pension and gratuity plus a Special Capital Payment on top.
The SCP worked out at 3/4 of one year's pension, and I reckoned that I had the opportunity of two more promotions, so I did not volunteer. The spreadsheet shows that I made the right choice as my pension is now considerably more than it would have been had I grabbed the money and run in 1994!
I doubt that any future redundancy terms will offer any more than that.
