They will not keep any rank gained prior to discharge but can be assessed to re-enter at a lower level if they hold the correct qualifications under the discretion of BGHQ.

10-3. Dishonourably Discharged Personnel

Dishonourably Discharged members have the right to request for their Dishonourable Discharge to be overturned at any point. The request will be reviewed by Battlegroup HQ and an outcome will be disclosed to the member who requested the overturn of said Dishonourable Discharge. Additionally, the member may be invited to attend an interview to provide further information surrounding their discharge. The outcome of the request will only be disclosed to the member who made the request.

If a Dishonourable Discharge is overturned, the member’s status will return to ‘Registered’ herein, they will be allowed to reapply to the unit.

If a member whose Dishonourable Discharge was overturned returns to the unit, the member in question will be placed on a 3-month probationary period. The member’s Chain of Command (CoC) retains the right to extend this period if necessary. If at any point the member in question does not adhere to the standard of the unit, its SOPs and any conditions set out on re-entry to the unit during this period they may be discharged from the unit with immediate effect. Upon the successful completion of the probationary period, the member may request any deployment ribbon/s they may have previously gained prior to their Dishonourable Discharge.

10-4. Phase 1 instructor discretion for returning members

Honourably discharged and retired personnel returning to the unit after the periods of time outlined above can apply to the lead Phase 1 instructor in J7 to be reviewed for a written Phase 1 exam. The Lead instructor will review the applicant’s previous experience when considering the application. If approved, the applicant will sit an exam and be assessed by a Phase 1 instructor or J7 representative. This will be conducted in TeamSpeak with the instructor in attendance and within a set time period. If the pass mark for the exam is reached the member will not be required to resit Phase 1 Training.
