My thoughts exactly. It's slughtky better for the RN in that with home ports you can spend a lot of your carreer based out of the same place, but for the Army it's bad news, especially for 'Corps' personnel that move from regiment to regiment so are genuinely shifting all over Europe every 18 months to 2 years.McHammock said:Absolutely incredible.
I thought one of the reasons for accommodation at less than civvie market rates was to help counter things like having to move home every 2 years.
Person now finds it cheaper to by a house in e.g. Pompey area. Gets drafted to Faslane & decides not to move family from nice new home. Now has to pay extortionate accom charges that made hime buy a house in the first place ????
Pay rise, what pay rise ?
Of Course HMG will turn round & say their only following independant AFPRB recommendations. Who sits on AFPRB ?
