Dear Ministry of Defence,

I would like to see a copy of regulations/JSP relating to the issue of the veterans badge to the reserve forces.

More specifically those regulations which state that they are not issued to reservists until a year after leaving service, even on retirement at the age of 60 when no further service is possible.

Yours faithfully,

K Jones

Dear [email address] on behalf of Defence Business Services Secrtariat,

Strangely enough - after applying for my veterans badge 6 months ago following retirement/discharge and receiving email stating that it could not be issued until June 2018 - I received my veterans badge this morning.

I would still like to know the correct information

Yours sincerely,

K Jones
