Am I entitled to a pension?

Can anyone point me in the right direction or answer my query? I joined the RN in June 1962 , did a LS1(?) And came out in June 1971. Am I entitled to any sort of deferred pension? This 1975 business has me completely baffled! Thanks in anticipation. Peter..
PS all adult years.

I am sorry to have to tell you that, because you left before 1975, you have no preserved pension for your service between 1962 and 1971.

When I left the army in 1976 I had over 7 years reconable service. However I left two months before my 26th birthday so under the rules of AFPS 75 I am ineligible!

This rule did not last long and the 26 age restriction was removed, but not in time for me, and I bet quite a few other guys.
