The only ones who ever retired on full pay were the MRAFs and equivalent. The government decided a long time ago (2000?) not to make any more promotions to those ranks. So, the only full pay retirees now are the surviving MRAFs, Field Marshals and Admirals of the Fleet, most of whom seem to sit on the red benches in the Lords.
