I've just tipped up at a new regiment and will shortly be moving from the singlies block to a pad for the first time. Been told by numerous lads that I should avoid banging in my disturbance claim from SLA to SLA as it will mean I will not be able to claim for my relocation allowance of £980 odd going from SLA to SFA. When I mentioned this to the clerk he said that being my first pad, I'm not entitled that relocation allowance, although lads I've spoken with have said that it's bollocks and they themselves recieved the claim going from the block to the pad themselves. Any AGC types that can give us a heads up on where I stand with this? Am I entitled to the SFA move claim and go above the clerk on this matter or is he right and should just bang in my £80 odd claim for disturbance?
