Anyone know current rates of LOA (if any at all) for Cyprus?

Married SSgt no kids.

Cheers for help.
Approx £22 a day.
Is that a Wah? I didn't think it would be that high. Is Cyprus expensive then? I was under the impression it was quite a cheap place to live. Mind you, anywhere is cheap compared to rip-off Britain!!

It is a wah, you actually loose 1/3 of your daily rate. 1/6 for it being cheap in Cyprus, 1/6 for being a lucky cnut and being there in the first place!

No wah my friend.

Live the dream and enjoy the pop star wages.

It is a cheap place to live except the NAAFI prices for Tesco type foods can be a bit steep.

Beer, spirits, and fags are cheap as is Cypriot supermarket fare.

The diving is excellent and working hours are less than that of the UK.

The only downside is the island is heaving with fuckers from the RAF.

Just gone up due to the FFR change.

Dear Geordie Blerk
Hang about!! If it wasn't for the RAF you wouldn't get to the island!! You are only bitter cos we have the best facilities, cinema bowling alley, best beaches, Dreamrers Water Ski club. The only people I ever heard moaning in Cyprus were the pongos cos the wife couldn't find a Woolworths or C&As and they had run out of Ron Hills and white high heels!!

Although it sounds a nice posting Cyprus does have its downsides, like every other posting, I was there for a year, shopping IS expensive if you want to eat decent food, the LOA sounds a lot but you will use it, believe me. The winters are a long drag as the beaches are obviously a no goer, however skiing in Troodos is great fun.

Some of the RAF are good lads!!

Go native mate and it's cheap as chips.

Like anywhere really, go near the sea front and you pay through the nose. Go where the locals go and it's local rates. But best of all, you don't even have to get out of the car at the petrol station, just slide down the window and hand over the wonga!

Second hand cars are pricey. What you'd pay £1000 for here will be about double in theatre. Unless your going to buy a new car, I would seriously consider shipping your own, it's about £450-£500.

If you're a SLIM, stick a mobile air-con unit in your MFO, either that or spend June - Sep on the 'Sweat Yer Nuts off Diet' It can be unbearable.

If you get out and about there is lots to do on the Island.

Enjoy

Ever heard of Cyprus Airways?

They are the professional version of the RAF albeit more military orientated.

The only people I heard moaning in Cyprus were the RAF cunts normally just prior to a PT session.

You are all civilians in uniform and deserve to be ridiculed at every opportunity.

Then burnt to death in your own married quarters.

Have an obese day.

I have been a reader of this forum for about six months, I have not felt the need to comment until reading the above post. What the hell are you doing making comments like that? The tragedy is still fresh in the minds of everyone being just after the anniversary of the deaths. Maybe try and think before you post?

Geordie-Fuckwit is a bitter and twisted civilian troll who spends most of his time trawling through the cadet forums making sexually explicit remarks to Cadets. This perhaps the lowest comment I've seem him make but pretty much par for the course for such a pathetic waste of skin.

I've just come back from Cyprus - it can be expensive if you want to buy British, but if you shop local you can live very well. Sodexo was just taking over the retail when I left but they were promising great things.

If you want to get out and about you could do a lot worse than joining one of the Hash House Harriers that run on the Island. You will meet a lot of Ex-pats and get a second social life away from the potentially claustrophobic atmosphere of living inside the wire.

In my time on the Island I was astounded at the amount of people who just constantly moaned about there being nothing to do!!!! Fecking amazed me. If you can't find something to entertain yourself with on Cyprus then you probably don't deserve to be breathing fresh air.

And if you spend all your spare time trying to figure out ways of geting in and out of Napa without being busted then your pis*ing in the wind and will soon become very bitter about the whole affair. Put Napa out of your thoughts and get on with enjoying your time in what is one of the last peaceful sunshine drafts for british service personnel.
