Dear Arrse, Please help me, I am currently serving in the bleak north in a posting I am deeply unhappy with and did not ask for. I am due to marry in the new year with my future wife currently in the south and unable to move due to her work commintments. I have asked the CoC at my old posting before moving up north to have my posting order changed and have again gone through the CoC at my new posting to request a change. On both occasions I have been told that there is no chance of a move closer to my other half. We are currently just under 325 milies apart which is costing me a fortune in fuel, GYH pay helps. I have since submitted my Notice and am due out in Aug/Sep 09. I am now on the brink of being offered a couple of jobs with two companies sending out provisional offers to me. The Bn CO has since issued a directive that he is unwilling to release anyone early and that only the most extreme circumstances will even be considered. Once I have recieved these offers, I will test how strong the COs directive is but would like to know what steps to take should this be rejected? I have sought legal advice and the old barrack room myth about threatining the European courts is just that a myth. So apart from a strong letter to the CO and crossing my fingers what can I do?
