First off thanks to MarioMike for helping me find this thread!


I have a couple questions (and hoping for some clarity_.

If a member is being released 5F can they ask to be released under a less severe form of release in their representation memo?  Sort of "I don't want to be released but if I am can it be in something other than 5F?" 
Is that something the people at the other end of the representation memo can change or would the members release be set in stone?

If a member does get released under a 5F what is the process for them to have the 5F changed to something else? I've seen someone in this merged thread say they went to their local MP to have it changed. Is there a lower level way a mbr can go about doing that?  I guess I'm looking for a step one.

It would be done through the Grievance process.

Yes I've seen 5Fs reversed. One young soldier , IMO, was given a 5f release when another troop blatantly bladed him.  .

who the hell would do that? was it by like  accident or was it on purpose?

Can't speak for Hamish, but "bladed" may not have been meant in the literal sense.
