Interesting court martial on the horizon, General in the dock.

People have 'gamed' the system for years and somehow retained SFA for an estranged partner while living in the block.
Very true regarding the system being ‘gamed’. Which can work in both directions.

I knew (post my time as a UWO) of a captain obtaining a Married Quarter months and months before his wedding as his intended bride was a foreign national.

Had an entire summer living in the house with BBQs a plenty and a lovely ‘break’ from mess life. Then just before the great day the marriage gets cancelled and he simply hands the keys back in.

Just as well really as he was having all manner of parties and other women over; why, it was almost as if the intended bride never existed.

No, it was not me. I was living opposite jealousy watching the proceedings.

True, and thank you for the correction (its been a long time)!

I recall 2 years due to death in Service (I assume this was your case?) and commiserations if so.

93 days is the norm for most other cases.

The following periods of notice (all 93 days) to vacate SFA will be issued by the DIO Loss of Entitlement Team:
a. Normal Discharge.
b. Short Notice Discharge.
c. Medical Discharge.
d. Army’s Directed Early Retirement Scheme.
e. Redundancy Discharge.
f. Absent without leave.
On my last SFA patch (Stanmore) there was a chronicly-ill medically-retired officer who remained in quarters almost three years after his discharge as he was undergoing periodic novel medical treatment at the nearby Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. DIO were happy for him to remain there and he simply got a letter from his consultant every 6 months which satisfied the requirments.
 
I'm sure no rapes will happen
As a Nevada cop once told me, "Our ladies are taxpayers and clean, and our rapists are few. I like that equation."
 
No names or units but I'm hearing a screw was bust for "subjecting recruits to the trashing of their locker spaces and unfair treatment"
Sounds like a pretty standard day in depot
 
Apparently so. Its not illegal. Its between two consenting adults and what a women wants to do with her body is of no concern of the state.
Sex work is also not illegal and highly regulated and safeguarded in those more enlightened European countries. Extant policy is in place to stop exploitation, particularly in the developing world, but once more the army (*corrected to add: armed forces) has decided to moralise over its people with a political agenda.

Manzacnut, obviously.
Indeed, but what about the two "ladies" who seemed willing to accept cash for softcore porn and only complained when the manzacnut asked for his money back? If they too were RLC, was a wide angle lens necessary?

Hardly the highest standards for the army.

Does the RLC still count as ‘the Army’? ******* civvies in uniform.
 

Whoops-a-daisy.

I am given to understand (by mates ex-GR9 and CH47) that more than one Carrier Captain used to saunter about the place thinking that they were the next best thing to the Almighty himself.

Looks like this bloke (allegedly) subscribed to that school of thought.

“He says the meetings were totally above board, that he was mentoring them and offering career development, but it has raised concerns."
