As I understood the rules it is clear that all personnel eligible for the Beige List should be qualified in all respects for promotion. In simple terms the main criteria are: â¢ 3 Years as Capt (Acting or Substantive). â¢ 18 months Regimental Duty as a Capt (unbroken). â¢ 3 x MA Modules (A, B & C). (Or JCSC 57 or earlier). â¢ A current recommendation for promotion. What is very confusing and quite annoying is that there are many Capts (several Inf who I know of) who were selected on BL06 without being qualified (many through lack of MA Modules). They have been selected over those officers who are qualified and have spent the time and effort ensuring that they attended all education modules in time for the list. I wonder if there is anyone out there who can explain why this may be (either at APC or someone in the situation I talk about)? I have checked the No5 Board Practice & Precedent but cannot find a decent explanation to this bizarre phenomenon!! Will the same people be granted a âdispensationâ from the ârules when they have not completed MK2 prior to ICSC(L) in Sep 07???
