How many years?

Can anyone tell me precisely how many years NI contributions a male needs to
have to receive a full pension? If say for instance one was abroad working
for two years can they demand those years 'back' if you have reached 65 and
have been working since you were 15?

44 years. If you're only missing a couple of years between 16-65 then you'll get
the full basic state pension.
