Accommodation.

#1
I am currently being forced to move accom from a large room to a much smaller room. I was under the impression that certain posts - ARTD Instrs were entitled to specific requirements, desk, chair and storage space. I have searched the JSP's to no avail.

If someone could help me in this matter, it might give me some needed ammo to avoid eviction!

Cheers.

You should have joined the RAF ..then you could stay in a 5 Star Hotel..apparently...but you failed at school and joined the Army...tough... :lol:

I always thought WO's were entitled to a larger better room until I found out it's actually the Junior ranks that get better accommodation to ensure retention! FFS.

I have actually been asked to pose this question on here. I live out! Not an MP, but someone who wants what he is entiltled to.

However guessing by the answers given, most people are just content with "getting on with it" because they don't want to rock the boat. Typical Army solution. Don't want to upset people. Grow some balls and rock the boat I say. If no one ever complains or asks questions thats why nothing gets fixed, as all those above us think all is well.

Oh, so it's a "friend" now?

Lads are being killed and wounded almost daily, and you're whining about moving rooms. Get a grip.

I have obviously hit a nerve with this one. Yes I agree lads are being killed and wounded almost daily. And for that I have nothing but heartache for the families and friends involved.

However, my question is a valid one. Yes it is a group of friends, and if it affected me I would still ask this question. If you have nothing constructive to add and only some criticism, then I would ask you DeltaDog to abstain from this question. Are you a grumpy RQ or QM and don't like people quoting JSP's and Regs!

You're the dick for bringing that to the thread, are we to assume you feel the same about your own thread on the driving test being shoite???

Does nobody else have issues that can be discussed because of that???

Cheap shot.

I agree. And anyway, Delta, your profile has ”Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.” - Benjamin Franklin written under it.

Strange, as you're suggesting that this guy should just knuckle down and settle for what he's told, just because it would easier for everyone if he didn't make a fuss and stand up for himself.

Fair one - I phrased it poorly, but it wasn't meant as a cheap shot.

The point I was making is lads are still being issued with kit which is not up to the job and sent into the firing line without adequate support. Kick up a fuss and throw spanners in the works about that by all means; But when it comes to having to move to a smaller room, stop whining and pack your kit.

Why would an ARTD instructor get more space?

Why are you being moved? Are you in accommodation that you are not entitled too? How long have you had it, was it always a temporary thing?

1. Why are you required to relocate?

2. Find out if there are alternatives to what you have been offered, possibility of rent reduction, etc.

3. Sometimes me old mate it is a case of sucking it up and getting on with it if you want to live on camp.

Alternatively (as this is the NAAFI):

1. Lock the door & trash your room, sorry get your mate to trash his room.

2. Rip of your/his mattress cover and replace said clothing and uniform with it.

3. Collect all the faecal matter he can produce and redecorate the room with it.

4. Go on hunger strike........

Alternatively:

1. Get your Mam to write to the papers/ring the CO/speak to your MP (perhaps not).

2. Stick out your bottom lip and stamp your feet and it will all go away.

3. Join the Boy Scouts - they would never have you put up with this.

The accom is being handed over to a civvy company. People are being moved as there is a lack of space at this certain ARTD establishment and whilsit new accom is being made avaliable people must move.

It was mentioned that ARTD personnel are given extra space due to housing a desk etc. Not entily sure that is gospel or where it came from. I think the main gripe is not the move itself, but a move into a room that is considerably smaller by the standards that people have become custom to. The move will gain the distubance allowance as it is a forced move.

And as mentioned before, this isn't affecting me as:
a. I live out.
b. I'm posted.

Its just something a lot of the lads have a gripe with at my loc and would like some info.

Delta Dog, I agree with the get on with it attitude, however where does it end. Like I said before, without complaints people never know the entire truth and therefore think everything is fine.

I might suggest posing the question in forum where the clerky people hang out.

That being said, there is no rule governing what size accommodation must be. The only real rule is blokes and fems don't share ablutions. Some places have lance jacks in single rooms, some places have them sharing. If you get lucky then you're quids in.

It is a case of making the best of what you have.

So get on with it and stop whinging.
