31st July 2009 I was selected for promotion from LCpl to Cpl. Nearly a year later I am still not wearing! Needless to say I am getting pretty p*ssed off with all this. My units response has been Glasgow wont give you a PID but surely if there are PID's availiable and no-one is posted into them then its not a drama to put me in one of them? I have complted the relevant courses and am qualified etc. As a result I have missed out on a lot of pay and the experience of being a Section Commander! To make matters worse there are 3 of us in the same Squadron in the same situation. Does anybody know of the regulations or guidelines regarding this as I think this is ridiculous! What is the point in selecting soldiers for promotion, making a big deal out of it by opening the mess and getting everyone lashed, praising them and giving pats on the back etc and then saying but you cant wear it yet?
