On an appeal against sentence1 the Court Martial Appeal Court2 may quash the sentence passed by the Court Martial3 and pass in substitution for it any sentence that it thinks appropriate, and is a sentence that the Court Martial had power to pass in respect of the offence4. The Appeal Court may not exercise such powers in such a way that, taking the case as a whole, the appellant5 is dealt with more severely on appeal than he was dealt with by the Court Martial6.
