Request for up to date info about married quarters in and around London

#1
Husband starting a job at the MOD in spring next year. Struggling to get up to date info on the patches available and which ones are the best...can anyone help? Have 1 young child, so schooling is a consideration. Application process is all electronic now and you don't seem to be able to speak to anyone for information anymore!

PM me your email and I'll send you a pdf. It's old (2006) but still accurate.

Normal options include Putney, Kingston or Bushey

For wot it's worth, I spent 5 yrs in West Byfleet ('98 - '03), and (usual grumbles about MQ maintenance excepted) we all (me, Mrs Stonker and 3 kids, who still have friends from there) thought it was hard to beat.

If it's still there and available, be prepared to stab your mum in the back to get a house there.

Old thread I know - but does anybody have a copy of this old PDF that they'd be willing to share? Looking for info on locations of Officers' SFA for a posting to Main Building. Cheers

'how to' is in the thread

PS. My post #9 still stands, although I have fond memories of Bushey in my 20s, but I was single then, and it was where my (civvy) mum lived.

I prob still have it on my PC. Will look for you and send it if you give me your email. We are in Uxbridge and v happy. Commute not brilliant but if what you want is west of London, it is fab. Close to Heathrow and M25. We are v happy with local RC school. Houses used to be RAF so 2 bathrooms, 1 ensuite, double garage. West Byfleet better commute but diff to get a house. More of a typical patch existence. Putney houses v small. Kingston nice location but horrid houses. Northolt on the runway and bad state of repair.
