Equality in veterans pensions
Forum thread for campaign Equality in veterans pensions
“ <br>Veterans who left service before April 1975 get no pension ”
The other thing that got me when I left the RAF is that employers didn't recognize the skills you aquired in the services.
The Australian Government means test pensions, so I don't receive anything from Australia, just a half pension fro the UK thats another gripe it does not ever go up, not linked to inflation, another thing the UK Government is doing me out of!
So a bit of pension for my time in the RAF would be nice
I did active service in Egypt,2.5 years then another 2.5 in UK,I should get a pension. !?????

Leon Slade , I did get the service medals
I think of all those draft dodgers,they carried on with their jobs,
when I was fighting for my country,mind you,I became a Licenced CAA radio/radar enjoined in civy street.Sighning up for 5 yrs was the best move of my life.
Although I only served for 5 years in the 1960's, and during this period I was not on active service at any time.
I wonder if other European, or International Service personnel are treated in the same way.
