Ian, I think it was the other way round. LS&GCM from 17.5 and pension from 18. Still confusing though.
Its worse than I thought!
I've just dug out my Certificate of Service. My 'Previous Service' is listed as my time as a Boy Entrant.

Being one of the youngest Boys, I joined at 15 years and 66 days, I passed out still under 17. There are 11 months from when I passed out of Boy's service to when my engagement started on my 18th birthday that are simply not recorded in my Certificate of Service.
In that period I was promoted twice from B/E to LAC to SAC!
How could that happen when I wasn't in the Service?
