asked the Secretary of State for War how many years a brigadier must serve in Her Majesty's Forces before being entitled to retire on pension.

To get his full pension, a brigadier must have given 28 years' service, have had at least two years in the rank unless he is being invalided, and, if retiring voluntarily, be within two years of his compulsory retiring age. If he goes earlier, he gets a reduced award. The minimum service qualifying an officer of any rank for retired pay is 20 years or, if the officer is invalided, 10 years.
