  • Medical discharge from the Royal Navy

    HELP PLEASE ANYONE - Now urgent as dicharge looming

    Not sure if this is the best place to post - I am looking to help my sister and her husband , who is serving in the forces and is going to get discharged on medical grounds shortly, losing his home ( married quarters),his chance of promotion which he was working on when he got injured,the full pension due to him from the forces,the final golden handshake which was due to him in 18 months time when he would have finished his service and his and his familys dream of a new life in New Zealand.
    Pretty harsh but more so when it came to light that the forces had recomended that he take a lesser part in certain physical exercises, due to his ongoing medical issues.
    Any ideas anyone?

    Would he be entitled to anything under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme

        Try the Royal British Legion for advice. Also the Reserve Forces and Cadet's Association are supposed to look after the needs of ex servicemen, I wouldn't hold out too much hope with these though as they tend to be staffed by retired paid Senior Officers.

        The Legion on the other hand have no political axe to grin and will offer the best advice.

              MattyA.

              After you posted first time I started looking into medical discharge from the armed forces out of curiosity. I found a frightening statistic: more war veterans died from suicide as a result of PTSD and depression after the Falklands War, than died in action fighting it. The point being that the Government simply doesn't provide the financial resources to treat our troops after they've given their all in the line of duty and the compensation is woefully inadequate. Shocking.
