    Hi Newwirelandnavy , I read your good news about the result of your enquiry . I'd be very interested in what they told you . I served 1965-1976 which includes junior service joining at Ganges . I'm now 62 and living in Australia at the moment . I think my reckonable time will be 9 years . Thanks for any help .
    Cheers , Mac Dray. ex.POAM L/089269/U

    Hi , Any chance you can pass on the information on pensions . Ref. 3 x years junior service and then 9 x years man service . I'm in Australia and can't contact H.M.S. Centurion . 1965-1977. ex-A/POAM.
    Cheers , Mac Dray .

    In 1976 you would have to have had 5 years service from age 18 AND be over age 26 when you left to have qualified for a preserved pension. Looking at the dates you gave, I fear that you don't qualify. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    Hi Navy Net, I have found a letter ( undated ) from HMS Centurion , titled :" Preservation of Pension Rights". Saying I have a preserved pension of $431.58 Sterling , and a terminal grant of $1312.74 normally payable at 60 yrs. The scale of preserved benefits over age of 18yrs. is 2.75% of full career pension . Terminal grant 3 x the annual pension . I'm not sure what this means for me . I know Centurion has closed ......not sure what to do next . I live in the Australian Outback . Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm 63yrs this 20th. November 2012. Cheers, Mac Dray ex.POAM .

    Bit of info for you in here, hope it might help!! http://www.mod.uk/NR/rdonlyres/533CC...etversion2.doc Old Boys! Have you claimed your pension?? - MoneySavingExpert.com Forums had to laugh at his statement that the armed forces pensions providers won't come looking for you at age 60, if you don't claim you won't get it!!!! Funny that HMRC have no trouble finding you at any age

    To my understanding if you served after 6th April 1975 you are entitled because the pension changed hands.before that you had to serve your full time,hope this helps.here is the address. hope this is of some assistance.
