Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Got my Blue Light Card in the post today - a mere two weeks after it was sent! Not bad considering the time of year and industrial (in)action.

Haven't tried it yet....... (at home with a stinking cold....)

I found the NHS / GP to be the only organisation that was aware of my service as the RAF provided all my med records to them about 18 months after I left. Every ECG, annual medical, op deployment, incident & accident and every single medication dispensed over my 30 years. The GP surgery seemed very keen to have this proof of service as they get a bit more money for every veteran on their books, plus access to other resources.

MM, thanks for the update. I applied the code to my application and was thanked for the payment instead of receiving an irritated and repeated demand for it! Definitely an improvement on before. So, a sit on your hands time now with postal strikes and public holidays abounding and not a time for impatience. Nevertheless an unexpected Christmas pressie from my old and benevolent employer (tugs forelock). Gawd bless yer gov, yer a toff and no mistake!
