Foreign and Commonwealth Soldiers

Lots of articles/letters about this in Soldier mag recently. Apparently the party line is that F&C soldiers can serve (and have residential status) but DO NOT qualify to even apply for naturalisation until after they leave the Army. Has anyone heard any stories (horror or otherwise) about F&C soldiers being skiffed because they don't have a British passport?
I have dealt with this once before, getting families over for F & C soldiers who have enlisted in the UK (at there own expence I hasten to add), Visas etc. I went direct to G1 at Bde/Div level for advice, just can't remember the outcome on the Pasport situation, try them. :?
