LSA Question

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Following an exercise in the UK, I travelled directly to a 5 day course in Germany - both away from my duty station.
    Would my LSA stop on the day I left the exercise or would it continue up to the last day of the course?
  2. Stop after exercise conditions granted.
  3. If you did not return to your duty station / home I would say that it should continue as you are still absent from both of them and unable to travel back during periods of standdown.

    There used to be a rule if you got LSA, and then went back to your unit, but then went away again on LSA qualifying separation less than 10 days later then you would have it for the whole period (not sure if that is still in the regs though)
  4. because you didn't return to duty station and your course was overseas the LSA should continue.
  5. Won't it depend on the day his exercise finished and course started? If there is a weekend inbetween I don't think the LSA continues.
  6. depends on end of exercise and start of course but reliable source (0A is an FSA) says no
