Not sure if this belongs here, but I guess it's kind of related to Bases/Shore est. Can anyone help? I am in Ratings SFA in Helston, I start Dartmouth SUY training in Feb 10, then I am going to Sultan in Apr 10 for 2 years MESM training. My daughter is in her last year of Primary School and starts Secondary School in Sep 10. Question 1 When would I qualify for Officer SFA - from joining Dartmouth in Feb 10 or on completion in Apr 10? Question 2 Can Pusser make me move out of my current area to Pompey in Apr 10 if my daughter only has 4 months of the school year left (Aug 10)? Question 3 If I move into Officer SFA in my current area in Apr 10 (assuming I am only entitled to Officer SFA on completion of Dartmouth), and remain here until Aug 10 whilst my daughter finishes school, can Pusser then make me move again in Sep 10 to Pompey? I have read JSP 464 and to answer Question 2, I believe that a letter of support from CEAS could help my case. In answer to Question 3, I believe that would count as two moves within an 11 month period, so I wouldn't have to move and could stay in Helston SFA, commuting from Sultan as necessary. But I'm no expert, I'm hoping someone in here has the answers :? Interestingly, I know of a few people who have been drafted away from this area for longer than 12 months and have been able to remain in SFA here, and I'm almost certain that they do not fit the criteria of having kids that are doing GCSEs.
