The Federation has completed its Researched Report into the failure by this Government to recognise and pay the Occupational Pensions and Gratuities for the accrued years of service due to members of the Armed Forces serving prior to 1975. This is the only such Report in existence.

The Federation has established the total cost to the Government to satisfy the above, and has circulated its full Report to all Members of Parliament. It is most important therefore, that all ex members of the Armed Forces serving prior to 1975, including any present day widows of service personnel, are registered with the Federation to ensure inclusion in any settlement. Additionally, representations have been placed before the Prime Minister, and his Government, calling on him to address this injustice immediately.

Meanwhile our case is before London solicitors, experienced in the field of challenging HM Government over injustices relating to the Armed Forces. They are currently seeking further guidance from our Secretary General (December 2015) If you wish to register your accrued years of service towards an Occupational Pension, and Gratuity to be taken into account, please forward your details via the "Membership" section of this website. The Combined Armed Forces Federation UK (CAFF UK) is now the only organisation seeking reparations on behalf of pre-1975 leavers - your support and the support given by current members, on your behalf, is greatly appreciated

The Secretary General is keen for members to try and establish the equivalent rates of pay for "Civilian equivalents" in the mid 1950's, 60's and 70's in relation to their Service Category. These may possibly be available from Trade Unions or large companies such as B.A. or P&O for example. Please forward any responses to the Secretary General in writing (address above) and not by E-mail. You will need to describe what your duties and responsibilities were.

Research Assistants are required to carry out library work if you have time to spare. Please contact David Robson Secretary General CAFFUK.
