    Been in surplus SFA for past 2 years (which I was lucky to get) so my kids could stay nearly every weekend and most holidays. They live 200 miles away with the ex.

    The rub is I'm now being 6 weeks notice to vacate so an entitled family can move in, fair one but I now have to move back into the mess, rent civ net or was offered another surplus SFA 2 hours away from duty station.

    The estate where the SFA is has mostly been sold off, 4 houses are empty due to being community centre, unused office and thrift shop. Plus the crowning turd is that two houses have just been converted for single female SNCO's to live in due to lack of female toilet facilities in the mess.

    I sometimes wonder what is going on especially with all the hype about new SFA builds and SLAM which isn't coming anytime soon.

    Rant over.
