Hi, This is one for all of you allowance gurus out there, any of your comments will be very welcome as I know that this is a VERY grey area and open to massive interpretation. This is the situation: I am away from my duty station for circa 10 weeks. This is 80-odd miles away. I can go home during stand-down periods, however, these are few and far between and normally consist of one day (or part thereof) rather than a weekend. Additionally, they are often going to be mid week - as I proved this afternoon with a nice 8 hour round trip to spend 4 hours with my wife before getting back to do my kit for the early start tomorrow. My question is this: Am I eligible for LSA or GYH? My duty station RAO is maintaining that LSA is only payable if in a different theatre. I disagree.... Many thanks in anticipation for your comments. Tubs Edited to add: I have searched but I can't find this exact situation.
