Now retired and am volunteer treasurer for the Combined Armed Forces Federation (CAFF) so what is that Did you come out before 1975 and no pension?? I did and nothing to show for it. Caff are fighting to put things right ,we have over 800 members who subscribe. We have the services of a researcher at parliment and are in the process of preparing a report to be sent to every MP we will then lobby for a bill to ammend the present legislation to include service personell, we were excluded beyond 1975 when the pension leglislation was passed but other civil servants were included retrospectively. so if you demobbed before 1975 send me an E'mail and I will send you the gen or visit our website for more info fight now for your right to a pension.

Thanks for the info Tony as I am one of these poor unfortunates. I miss it by 5 months so I will see what I can find out.

Re: Pension info, may be useful to someone

I was amazed when I sent off to find out what I can expect in 2 years time. I did 12 years and the current expectation is (not counting any increase in the next 2 years) is 9 grand gratuity and 3 grand a year.
Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick
