I'm currently on a 6 month deployment like most of my unit, and my wife who is left behind in germany informs me that the new housing officer (A WO2) has sent out letters giving all the pads wives 2 weeks to get a grip of there gardens and surrounding areas as he is to do an inspection (including over 6ft hedging that runs down all the gardens in my street). Furthermore any home that dosn't come up to his standard will then be billed Â£30 per hr so that the german camp maintanance team can go and sort out the gardens. So my questions are, can can he give only 2 weeks notice? can the army just take this money from my wage if my wife fails the inspection? Oh and please don't judge me as a moaning c%*t I am fully aware that the gardens ETC. on the patch are the responsability of the tennents, but what is getting to me is the fact many of these women have kids, jobs, some are pregnant and most have there husbands away on tour. In my eyes its just Bully tactics.
