The leave is normally to be set against the receiving unit's establishment, but this may be varied if both units agree, and should be allowed for when specifying reporting dates on individual assignment orders. It may be taken either before or after the individualâs latest time of arrival (LTA) at his new unit, but must be agreed by both units beforehand.
8.003 Trained strength personnel after joining their first unit are to be granted between one and 10 working days Relocation Leave as decided by Commanding Officers, who are to take into account single Service guidance, unit manpower liability and the needs of the individual. This applies to all moves resulting from an assignment order necessitating a change of SFA, SLA, substitute equivalents or private accommodation. Intra-theatre moves attract the following leave:
a. One day in the case of moves which do not require a move of domestic accommodation.
b. Five days for all other moves within the UK (or within a theatre outside the UK).
c. Additional leave of up to five further days may be granted where the individualâs circumstances require it.
d. Relocation Leave is to be set against the departing unitâs establishment, though this may be varied if both units agree, and should be allowed for when specifying reporting dates on individual assignment orders.
