Hi folks,

At the end of last year, we were watching Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump sabre rattling at each other and it felt like we were on the precipice of war. Last week, we witnessed The North Korean leader meeting with his South Korean counterpart, the cessation of the North Korean nuclear programme and promises of peace. Events in Syria mean that we haven’t yet pulled back from the brink but these developments are fascintaing and fast-paced, so who knows what’s next?

Former servicemen and women who were based in Paderborn, Germany are urged to get in touch with the Royal Military Police if they know anything about the disappearence of Katrice Lee who went missing from the base in 1981. If you were there at that time, please do rack your brains and maybe this 36-year-old mystery can finally be solved.

The clock is ticking for new GDPR regulations which dictate how we contact you. Please ensure you have logged into your Ex-Mil Recruitment account and updated your details. Anyone who hasn't logged into their accounts for a period of time will be removed from our system.

You could be eligible for a university degree in management

A university degree in management can lead you into a worthwhile second career. Your rank could make you eligible for an online MBA at a prestigious UK university. Even if you have a specialist skill, a university degree in management is particularly relevant as your next career path should take you into management.

www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place with LSM (distance learning associate college of Anglia Ruskin University). There is no charge for this work, as it is paid by LSM, so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.

The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.

One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: Three Wishes

A man finds an ancient oil lamp and out comes an all powerful genie.

Genie: "You have 3 wishes."

Man: "I don't know, I've seen this before. Whatever I wish for will come back and bite me in some way."

Genie: "I promise that won't happen. I'm so sure it won't I'll give you infinite wishes if it does!"

Man: "Okay. I wish for a boomerang with teeth."

Genie: "You son of a…"
