Documents required

Documentation submitted to support a claim of military service needs to include:

  • the rank(s) you achieved
  • the division(s) you worked in
  • the length and dates of services for each rank

Please note a Certificate of Enlistment is not sufficient to support your claim.

You must provide one of the following:

  • ADO Service Record Report (full PMKeyS statement) containing a complete service record which is available to serving members of the Armed Forces. The statement contains current rank, date of enlistment, length of service, current occupation, posting and promotion history.
  • A letter from your supervisor/personnel officer/commanding officer giving rank, length of service, and, if possible, occupation.
  • Certificate of Service which states rank on discharge and dates of service.
