Hi, My question is: I have made a claim with AFCS, but been told now its being dealt with as a War Pension. I'm currently serving and have over the years suffered from Hearing Loss. I thought it may be due to having served with Mortars (No.1) for x amount of years and being exposed to loud explosions etc. After many tests and trips to Gosport, this is not the case. The only other way I can think of my hearing being affected is, when I contracted Bacterial Meningitis in Basic Trg. However that being said my records show I was H1 H1 a few years after this. It looks like my Hearing has been inaccurately recorded and this is not to undermine or question the Regimental Ptes & Lance Jacks that may of recorded these. I have been given a hearing aid and wear it at home watching TV etc instead of having TV on 50, but won't wear it at work (as you feel a Mong). I should do as I consciously hear myself asking people to repeat themselves. My claim has been going on for a year now. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
