No, they should happen when your going on a long course and leaving the Mrs to do it all.

I would like to remind people it's not a good idea to phone the wife the night before marching out and say "Don't worry about me being bored love, I'm off to the bar"!

No. Everyone has reasons for wanting to be posted where and when they want. Unfortunately the Army can't accomodate us all.

Now, sensible answer over, this is the NAAFI bar and it was a bit of a rubbish question, everbody pile on!

Preferabley but not always going to happen. I've always found however if you request a posting be delayed or brought forward (so long as it's not too long) they are usually quite accomodating.

Mind you I wouldn't be surprised if they did come back with.... remember 'the Army's need always come first'

NO - because probably as was usual in my day (yes I know Im and old bastard) some poor singlies will get spammed with covering for all the bloody pads on the move.

Does the SLAP (Single Lads Agains Pads) Club still run in certain units?
