The number of airmen who can be allowed to re-engage to complete time for pension is necessarily limited by the requirements of the service from time to time, and it is not practicable to give a forecast of conditions many years hence. The numbers accepted are such as to ensure to re-engaged men promotion to and employment in ranks appropriate to their qualifications and experience. Apprentice entrants not eventually accepted for re-engagement on the active list are offered entry into the reserve with a gratuity of £100.
