I'm due to report to my new unit on mon 31st March (3 Bn REME) and have just been told my new quarter will not be available until the 18th of April (Detmold). My problem is, my unit are on leave and I am unable to get in touch with anybody. I am due to book in on the 31st then go on leave until 11th of April when I'll be sent on exercise back in the uk until 29th April. My wife doesn't drive, doesn't know any German, has never lived outside of the UK and we have an 18 month old daughter, all that on top of the fact that with me out of the country my wife will have to try to arrange all the march out and removals stuff. How will my family move to Germany when it's already been arranged that they are to travel with me? I need to know if I definitely need to report on the 31st to book in or if the clerks can put me on the system, I don't see the point of going all the way to Germany for one day then having to come back. If I could stay here till the 11th and deploy on exercise it would save me nearly Â£500 and I could take care of all the admin needed to move my family abroad. If there are any welfare people, or any senior ranks within 3 Bn, available to help me I would very much appreciate it, I've already left messages with the welfare officer and duty orderly officer.
