I don't know if its me, but I was under the impression that you could only retain your rank on retirement if you were of field rank i.e. Major or above. There seems to be a plethora of Capt (retd) appearing all over the place. I was only aware of Capt peacock until recently ! Can anyone advise on the legitimacy of using Capt(retd). Braindrain WO2 (retd).
