I was posted in the Summer however due to a deployment straight away the Mrs wanted to stay in the current quarter until I got back then we would move. Completed the forms and asked for a quarter in the 1st week of December. DIO came back with a house outside the 20 mile limit (as stated in the JSP) so we refused it. It turns out that I used the RAC route finder and it came in with around 23 miles. They use the AA which comes in at 18.5 so they are saying 'tough'. The issue I have with using the AA is that for the last 5 miles or so of the journey it uses single track country lanes that are not maintained at all and are frankly treacherous in the winter (I use a motorbike to commute). I know this sounds bone but can you appeal this? No one in their right mind would select this route - there are perfectly good B - roads that will get you there quicker but obviously this would extend the distance and so invalidate their offer. Any advice would be appreciated. When I get back I am not looking forward to a cheeky 45 mile commute along Wilthshires sh"ttest roads never mind the hassles of mess functions etc etc!
