Hey Just wondering about these rumours going about that you cant get your first posting within 50 miles from your home? Is this true?
You can, but it's called joining the TA.

No, it's not true.

If you have a genuine, compassionate need to be posted near to home, go and see the Welfare Office and they'll try and square you away.

If you just want your laundry doing by Mum every weekend - guess what!? :twisted:

If you're married they usually give you a home within 50 miles of where you're posted

I had heard that when I joined uo but to be honest why did you join up if you want to be near home?

mate, if you have dramas let them know your reasons for needing it, 9 times out of ten, if the vaccancy is there and your reason is good you will get it. all the best

Yup, 3 choices.... and you should get exactly what you want provided you put Bulford, Bulford and Bulford, tee hee!

Best of luck bud! :D

Having had a chat with the SoinC team it was his aspiration to stop first postings within 50 miles of 'home', this was to instil an ethos and actually learn what being in the Army is all about (One of the few things that Big Ted has actually done for the better) However as mentioned earlier if there is a compassionate reason for you to be near home then that will be taken into account. Where do you want to be posted to??

It's a noble aspiration that we can all agree with. The main problem is that HQ SOinC (A) doesn't do the postings, they are done by a desk officer up north. Some are good guys / girls but some are less so.

Province is fantastic!! The only other way of getting round a posting is see if someone wishes to swap and Records are more than accommodating.
