I have been detatched to another unit for a bit, and decided to put in for 2 weeks worth of my hard earned REN leave after my time away. Got a phone call of the boss and told me it was all hands to the pumps due to a technical inspection next week and I had to come in. Ok, like a keen little squaddie, I put aside the knowledge that only Ops could cause cancellation of REN leave and decided to help the cause. Tipped up on Monday morning to find the majority (all except 10) of my company had buggered off on adventure training, leaving me the only senior from the platoons to run the place (ok only 10 blokes, but still annoyed at it). My questions are: Can REN leave only be cancelled for Ops, or is this just a nasty rumour? If this is true - what can I do about it? (Apart from skiffing the bosses mug - he seems to spend his life in HQ and I come out in a rash if I go up there) Cheers.
