; where—

A is the number of completed years in the period; and

B is the number of completed days in any remaining part of a year.

(4) The pensionable service of a part-time regular firefighter member shall be calculated as a proportion of whole-time service by applying the formula—

B is the weekly whole-time equivalent conditioned hours; and

C is the period of his part-time service in years (calculated in accordance with the formula in paragraph (1), and with regard to paragraph (2)).

(5) The pensionable service of a retained or volunteer firefighter member for any year or part of a year of his service shall be assessed as a proportion of whole-time service in accordance with the formula—

reg (5)

, where

A is the actual pensionable pay received in that year, and

B is his reference pay for that year.

(6) Where, for the purpose of calculating an award payable to or in respect of a firefighter member—

(a)it is necessary to determine his pensionable service reckonable by reason of service or employment before or after a particular date (“the material date”); and

(b)by virtue of the receipt by the Board of a transfer value payment, he is entitled to reckon a period of pensionable service (“the credited period”) by reason of employment for a period (“the previous employment period”) which includes that date,

the credited period counts as pensionable service reckonable by reason of employment before and after the material date in the same proportion as that between the parts of the previous employment period falling before and after the material date.
