Newby on the block, father of a Lcpl serving in Germany. My son handed in his notice o quit in June(ish) and with all the leave entitlement, re-settlement etc has benn given March 2007 as a leaving date. Last month whist on leave he attended and interview and was offered a position with a comapany so as to get back on the civvy job ladder. The company wrote to his regiment asking for cosidration for early release, regiment ws OK but MCM Div (?) said a catogory no!!. This lad has had 2 tours of IRAQ, Kosovo etc yet no some civvy pen pusher doesnt even think about what he/she is doing. No doubt "More than my jobs worth guv". It wouldnt b so bad if he had anything to do in Germany (thers only so many times you can change a light bulb!!!). No doubt there is loads of posts like this on here but if this was happening on civvy street it would be classed as restriction of earnings or similar. Any ideas anyone????
