    Despite the aforementioned heat there are also a lot of people in the unit that could do with some one on one from a PTI

    The phys facilities there are good, pool is okay too. Not far from the Troodos Mountains for adventure training or some gentle hill work. Running routes are well establshed and varied. Other than that, social life is fine, and you get all the obvious advantages of being based in Cyprus. The catering was also very good when I was there, can't remember what the Naffi complex was called, but they did great milkshakes!

    I was there on a recce earlier on in the year. Eating out was horrifically expensive (parent unit GPC squared that away though).
    LOA (?) covers it if you live there but it will sting when your family use your pad as a holiday home 3 times a year.
