WHY?

"Retire honourably after more than 30 years service to the crown" sounds so much nicer though.

It is a shame that this became a "resigning" issue in the first place.
Is this really a resigning issue?

Having started an unnecessary fight, the outcome of which seems to be an enshrinement of the status quo more or less, I'm not clear as to why CAS/ACAS would now compound the failure of their strategy by throwing themselves on their swords. Surely the mature thing to do is put a positive spin on the outcome as it affects one's service and exercise some leadership.
