Below is an extract from the HQ AMD support unit newsletter dated 16 Oct 09. I'm not too impressed with this ! "ACCOMMODATION This is specifically for F1 and F2. READ THIS BIT. There is a discussion that is growing legs fast regarding accommodation entitlements for F1 and F2. Please be warned that, under Joint Service Publication 752 (JSP 752) you are technically not entitled to military accommodation at this stage in your development, as you have not yet undergone Phase 1 training (the PQO course at Sandhurst). In the past, where we could, we have assisted with a generous approach in trying to support you, although this has not always been coherent. I regret that, under increasing financial scrutiny, we have to return to the formal baseline of entitlement. This means an end to SSSA and FIA, to the entitlement to married quarters, and to a right to live in military messes on entitled rates. This is a warning order, but please be aware that you may have to move, or the cost of living in military messes may increase. The cost of moving will fall to you, as will the task of finding alternative accommodation. This may well occur prior to Christmas. Dates will be promulgated as soon as we have them."
