Can't help you with the first part, but with retirement ages, alot of people seem to leave the military around the age of 50, and go on to work in civillian life. (I've just had a training day with an ex-army officer today!) And yes, they do get a military pension. Not sure how much though, and would only get paid once you reached retirement age, so if you leave at 50, you won't start getting your military pension until you retire at 60/65.Originally Posted by Karaley Dargen
I had a quick google and found hmforces website, which had some information, might be worth checking out?
