Dear Ministry of Defence,
My 12 years of service in the Royal Air Force ended in September 1974. At that time I did not qualify for a service pension. In April 1975 the regulations for qualifying for a service pension were changed. If I had been made aware that the rules to qualify for a pension were to be changed shortly after my term of service was finished I could and would have extended my term of service. Do you have a reason why service people were not informed? and also is there and hope is being granted a pension?
Dear Mr Crome,
Please find enclosed a response from the Ministry of Defence to your
recent FOI request. I apologise for the delay in sending this to you.

Dear People-Sec-FOI Mailbox (MULTIUSER), I was discharged in September 1974. in April 1975 a new pension plan was put into effect. The new pension plan was known in 1973, and if I had been made aware of this new plan, I could have extended my service to qualify for a pension. My question is why was I not advised of the new
pension plan before I applied for my discharge.
