Transfer request advice needed

#1
Just a quick one if anybody can advise,

I have been instructed by my chain of command to write a formal letter requesting a transfer, however I am suffering writers block!!!

Anyone got any ideas for what I should include and how?

Thanks in advance! :)

All you need to do is say
How Do Sir,
I would like to transfer from A_______ to B________ because, I am leaving the area / want to use my civilian trade to better use in a new unit / your unit is a bag of w@nk and I want to go some where they have a clue on running a unit. (Delete as applicable).

Yours Sincerely

Here's what I wrote

"Dear Sir/Madman

I am applying for leave to transfer from The London Irish to the HAC. Although I hold you in high regard, many of your officers are inadequate disgusting social climbers who would have two chances of leading full time troops, slim and none.

Consequently, I am going to try to get into a regiment where the troopers are from all walks of life, and have nothing to prove to anyone, up, down, sideways, or in any other direction.

I remain Sir, etc etc, lie lie"

something like that should do the trick :)

Just write what you want to say in a legible format.

You are not being graded on your service writing. Even if they don't like it, you are transferring anyway.
