Hate to say this but the RAF and I believe the Navy, have this wonderful policy whereby if you get a posting you do not particularly like, you can advertise it in their equivalent of Soldier Magazine. If someone else fancies your posting and has the right qualifications etc, then you can swap postings. How enlightened. I believe this would be a great retention tool, or at the very least, a morale booster. How many people have left because either they or spouse did not want the new posting? Have known small Posting Plots in our lot where 8 WO1s due for posting have got together and agreed which of the 8 postings available they preferred. Information (solution=less work?) fed into the Glasgow Triangle and guess what? Not one of the 8 got what they had asked for. Result? 8 Pissed of big badges. Just one isolated example.
