Resigning a commission

#1
Hi everyone.

As the last couple of topics have been about becoming a rupert I thought now would be a good time to enquire how you would go about resigning a TA (B) Commission? Is it just a simple question of writing a letter and if so should it be addressed to the Commandant or someone else? Or are there other formalities I will have to go through?

I would normally contact my AO but he is unobtainable at the minute for personal reasons.

Any info would be appreciated.

Just pen a letter to the Commandant. He will action it. You are meant to give 1 month notice, but they'll not hold you to it (they can't really).

If you decide to come back in years to come it is easy enough to 'reignite' your commission and seniority.

Even as a 2Lt???

Yes, a 2Lt can be rekindled too. I don't know the score with regard to the probationary period - whether you have to complete your two years in aggregate or whether you'd restart your two years. To resign you just need to pen a letter like I said - any documentation is completed at County level and doesn't require any action on the resignee's part.

I would look at advise regarding resigning your commission against merely resigning from your current ACF county. the two are, potentially, slightly different but I may be wrong.

In effect they are the same thing. If you want to resign from your County and retain your commission then you don't resign - you ask for a leave of absence until you find somewhere else to go.

I am resigning my commission, not just leaving my ACF county. AO's gone AWOL so no help there and the CEO is a bit of a newby and doesn't seem to have a scooby doo.

Rab I can't have two army numbers mate, silly Rab :)

I'll be sure to let Andy know that you think so highly of him, i'm sure he'll be really onside next time you want all those extra PTDs for Lycra Stretching !

[align=justify]Wish my O.C would resign his commision, we have had two people, say they are going to quit, two SI and one SSI who has quit, and he seems not to be bothered, the SSI a good mate of mine (ex reg, ex TA, bags of experience, knowledge etc) was not even asked what could be done to try to retain him! He pointed out a few errors in training recently, and lots previously, and the response was "oh well" so he thought f@~k this, and said enoughs, enough I`m off. [/align]

illbeamonkeysoon,

The x212 bloke posting you is my QM initials M.A. and the 'Andy' he is referring to is my CEO. A few crossed wires me thinks. I will contact my QM and get him to stop harrassing you. I hope 'Andy' is still letting me transfer my PTD'sad doesn't read to much into this whole thing.

Anonymous forum my arrse!

Take care of yourself mate, we'll chat later on MSN i'm sure....

Surely, dosent this clearly illustrate the serious need for the powers that be to actually investigate and then act upon the serious need for the retention of present Officers and AI's? Open your eyes County and look into the cause of why so many people leave, rather than letting them just go, and recruiting more and more newbies. Retention of fully trained adults would be a far better proposition. I am satisfied that if the true figure of people who actually leave the ACF, CCF and the ATC through frustration were truly known then most people would be quite shocked. Cut the red tape County, get rid of the dead wood(and their muskets), put all adults through a CRB yearly and you will start to attack the root causes.
