Other Ranks Transfers to Australian Defence Forces. A serious question if I may and any constructive advice and accurate information would be most welcome. My Step Daughter remains in the UK at the present but wishes to join us here in Australia in due course. She has a fiancÃ© who has recently advised us that he intends to enlist into the Royal Artillery, in what trade we have no idea. He states that his objective is to eventually obtain a direct transfer from the UK to the Australian Defence Forces after 4 years service, he says he's been assured that this is available to him after he has served 4 years and that the British Army takes care of everything including arranging the transfer to ADF, arranging removals and shipping and flights. Now I suspect with good cause that its not quite as straight forward and simple as that. I suspect that there are conditions attached such as the ADF having a vacancy for him to transfer into and having a vacancy within his Corp and trade. I also suspect that there may be a minimum rank and trade limit placed against such transfers but Iâm too far out of the loop to know precisely. Can anyone shed any light upon direct transfers to the ADF, is this open to other ranks with four years service and does the Army really arrange everything as this young man states his âarmy career advisorâ has assured him is the case. Many thanks.
