Just curious to see if my Regiment can force me to take personal leave?
Most units that I have been in contact with have been instructing personnel to take leave over normal/traditional stand down periods such as Easter and bank holidays.I can see the OP's point. By being made to take leave now whilst you can't go anywhere may mean that later on when you can you might not have enough to be able to (unlikely I know but you can never tell how these things could pan out)....
Think there is a DIN out saying leave is being carried over 2 years at the moment, similar to civvy street?But I think the overriding concern is, a whole unit could return to work after sitting around for half a year with all their leave intact, thus impacting on a return to operational effectiveness.
Not seen it yet, but to be honest, I haven’t read any new DINs for a couple of months. Still going to be one hell of a back up if there is no enforced leave.Think there is a DIN out saying leave is being carried over 2 years at the moment, similar to civvy street?
I know my CO is worrying with the carry over of leave at the moment.
