I expect this will go down like a cup of cold sick...

Actually all three services were given the option, but each one is implementing it differently.

Its a means of getting people to take time off, and also save a bit of money into the bargain.

Only HM Forces could whinge about getting extra leave.

Just the article stated that the RN and RAF were not affected, slightly unfair I thought.

Well we've got 3 weeks xmas leave to drive down our leave totals due to busy year we've had. Next year will be the same

The rider to this was it would save on utility bills, will the last man to leave turn off the light, and the gas, and the tap

Anyone know if we're getting it too? IE just throwing another 5 days ALA onto the leave card to take when you can? Seems a bit unfair to give just to the Army when all 3 services contributed to those extraneous events this year.

Not that I care, I've got Christmas duty to look forward to.

Everybody was given 2 extra days ILA, trust me, check your JPA. This is a non story, 3 weeks instead of 2, still comes off leave totals.

Our skipper gave us extra 5 ILA for the Olympics which we took during the stand down but our extra xmas week is just to drive leave down no other reason

There is no way that any of us in seagoing units will be able to take any extra leave. We're struggling to get the lads away for their standard entitlement never mind anything else.

...and there are plenty of people who have been granted the extra leave who made no contribution to Op OLYMPICS, so it's "Life in a blue one". Nobody dips out; some just dip in more than others! :wink:

Just had a conversation in the office, 2SL has issued a Galaxy brief, which I have not yet seen, that states that the army and the crabs were indeed given5 extra days leave. We are not being given them because we don't have time to take our normal ILA. I've gone from not being bothered at all by this story to being absolutely staggered by that development.

Wait until there is official confirmation that it is not true before you believe it....
