    Hullo all,

    Shortage of immediate knowledge so can anyone tell me if you get LOA for the Falklands?

    Cheers!
     
  2. Yes, LOA is available for the Falklands, although not for single blokes it appears from the rates. Take a look at the SPVA info centre library available through the JPA portal for rates or ask your HR staff to direct you

    Not got access to any of that right now unfortunately. I'm MLI and am off there for two weeks for PRT stuff. Cheers though, I'll go take a look at it and get it squared before I fly.
     
  4. LOA is only available for those on accompanied tours IIRC. For everyone else it's just seen as a semi-Op tour, so no food or accommodation charges.
     
  5. i think you also get LSA, well i hope you do as i'm going there for 6 months
