Both JSPs 751 and 464 state that upon death of head of household(serving)a widow can retain the SFA for a period for up to 2 years, both in UK and ''overseas", in order to sort her (and possibly kids) life out. Except that under the SOFA in BFG the widow only has 90 days(this rule is contained within a SIBA(G)). The dead soldiers unit briefed the widow she can stay for up to 2 years in the SFA, as per the JSPs, but is now waiting for an answer from way up high on whether the widow can now stay beyond 90 days. Yet no mention of this local instruction is mentioned in the JSPs, hence, a widow is now potentially being told to sling her hook following the death of her serving husband. This can't be right? Can it?
