Is this at all possible? The loss of our entire back-catalogue of former Cadets (when it happened) caught me entirely by surprise. There may have been a warning order promulgated (if we do actually still ‘promulgate’ orders), but if so I missed any such warning.
Realistic Scenario One: a former Cadet requests a reference (some significant time after leaving) but the records retention/deletion policy prevents access to any of the Cadet’s service record (or Cadet CV option)
Potential Scenario Two: suppose an unsubstantiated allegation is made regarding a former Cadet by a currently-serving Cadet, regarding a theoretical incident during a visit. However, the former Cadet’s service record is no longer available to confirm/deny the basic circumstances.
So can we get regenerated information about former Cadets? For approved formal reasons? Or are they now deleted from within Bader for the rest of eternity?
Somebody here will have a definitive answer to this, surely (failing which I shall go and ask Wing…and presume that they’ll know)
