as in most cases, servicemen/women are posted away from home. As am I, though still in U.K. I have recently gotten Engaged to a woman from my home town and do not intend to be getting married for a few years. I was wondering if it was possible to get a house on the patch (pad) if there are any spare? Renting and living out is too expensive on a low band wage, and it is costing a sodding fortune to drive home all the time at weekends. sensible replies please :-/ Thanks.
