Taking a year away

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi could anyone help me this is my first post so be nice,

    I want too leave the army for a year away is there anyway to do this? i know there was a way too do this a couple of years ago but havent heard anything about it since.

  2. If there is one thing I can't stand are these cnuts always saying 'this is my first post', 'Honest, I did check for an existing thread'...

    Post away I say. Gives the Mods something to do.

    In response, I beleive the sabatical is still running, although I don't know how it currently assessed. You take a years unpaid leave (which is essentailly all it is) at teh end of which you can rejoin, or chin it. It DOES affect your pension etc, as for the year out you wont receive any service days.

    Ask your CoC, but be aware it would mean you are one year behind your peers etc for promotion and seniorty. If you have a year out, that is waht it means.
