The policy on leave travel has proven to be an absolute disgrace which will put many unlucky indviduals out of pocket. certainly being based in Germany the new rules seem particularily outrageous. Under the new rule you get one "get you home travel" claim per year from your TOS date. This can only be used to go back to the UK, to a registered and authorised leave address. On the 1 year anniversary of your TOS you then get you next years claim. This can only be used for one trip per year, not accumalative as one of the pervious leave options offered. So we are only encouraged to go home once a year! Very civilised? On the positive side they will now pay for your ferry, aparently!! To add insult to this new rule as of the 1 Apr 07 (JPA live day). If you are based in Germany and have less then 12 months to serve you are not allowed to claim WHAT SO EVER, Why I ask? The answer because that just how it is. As I am posted from Germany in Oct 07, and for the record have not used a leave claim since the anniverary of my TOS, I am entitled to absolutely nothing? I wonder how many thousand soldier based in Germany this has effect, bearing in mind that the majority of units easter block leave fell after the 1 Apr 07. Surely this is just another penny pinching disgrace. As if robbing us of Â£2s a day LOA was not enough. The instigator of this new policy is a pirate and thief, they should be ashamed of themself as this is just one more nail in the coffin of the overworked and underpaid members of the British Army.
