campaign to get HM Forces pensions back to pre April 2011 indexation calculated against RPI and not the lesser CPI.

campaign to get HM Forces pensions back to pre April 2011 indexation calculated against RPI and not the lesser CPI. How come so much money is at stake?
The 1% difference between CPI and RPI over 20 years equals 20% less pension.

Example: A SNCO retires after completing 22 years service; at 40 years of age. They will receive 20% less pension at age 60 under the CPI indexing, those who survive to see their 80th Birthday will have lost 40% of what they should be entitled to using the RPI indexing method.
