I joined Dartmouth at 20 and 360 days old. Friends who joined at age 21 have just been made up to Lt. I have to wait until April 2009 to get striped up. If I had joined in the next intake I would have been 21 and would be made up this June. This does seem strange to me and I do appreciate that the rank system on joining Dartmouth has changed. Also I understand there must be a cut off date for age on entry. My ACLO never warned me I would essentially miss out on 12 months seniority joining when I did and nor was I told on entry to Dartmouth. Do I have case for a representation, or should I keep my mouth shut and wait until April 09?
