    Still no posting oder!

    Hello girls,

    just got a question.We due posting in august and we still havent had a posting order through.
    I am getting a little p..... off cause i have got two kids and my little boy will go to school in the summer.
    Oh asked for a posting to the uk, so i am a bit worried cause i have to enroll my kids in the school.
    I thought about going to the welfare but oh is not so happy about it.What would you do or have you been in similar position?

    HELP, please.

    Curly

    Hiya,

    Depends if his MCM have plotted him into a new job. Does he know exactly where he is going or has he just asked for a UK post? If he has been told that he is going to somewhere definate then he can ask his OC/Adjt for to get a reference number from MCM before they do the assignment order (as they call them now) or If he explains to OC/Adjt (or whoever he gets his PO's from) that the kids need to be enrolled they will tend to hurry up MCM.

    Whos your OH with PM me I might be able to find somthing out depending who he is with......

    My husband is due posting in August as well, we haven't heard anything either, I thought I wouldnt hear til the last minute. Our baby is due at the end of June and Im fully expecting to find out after that. Should we have been told by now then? Maybe Im too laid back!

    I know the feeling, ladies, we haven't been told what our August posting is going to be either..but we know why there is a delay (I think I posted on this some time before and it was removed so just in case, I won't post it again)

    It's very, very frustrating and makes life just that lovely bit more difficult...not that it seems to matter to anyone in particular of course...

    Re: Still no posting oder!

    I was informed of my last posting 3 weeks after I was supposed to be there, then asked if I could get there for the weekend (this was on a Wednesday). To make it even better 'how about commuting?' (250 miles each way 5 days a week not forgetting any weekend duties of course)

    ....and you tell that to the youth of today and they don't believe you.....

    Not difficult, exciting "Where will we go? What country will we be in? What kind of house/flat will we get? Will the neighbours be nice? etc etc"

    But I'm new to all this and think it's great, maybe I wont a few years down the line. I am thinking of it as if they don't tell us til the last minute, then I don't have time to make plans, so my plans won't get ruined!


    Or am I being naiive again?!

    Re: Still no posting oder!

    That's a good way to look at it!

    Only problem for us is that I'm trying to get a job and without being able to put their minds at rest that no, I won't be moving in two months' time and yes, I'll be here for a year, minimum, I can't tie down an employer.

    It's rubbish.

    However, we only have a short time left to do this so I'm honestly not complaining. It's OH I feel sorry for...

    Hello to everybody,

    thanks for your comments. This isnt the first time the army hasnt given us enough notice but i was never bothered.This time the kids are going to school and starting school plus i have heard that they are very short on houses in the uk, so it could happen that he is getting send and we have to stay putt here in good old paderborn.
    And yes south you should have between 4-6 months notice. Its different for a single soldier but family it is 4-6 months.But to be anoused never happend to us.The shortest we had was three weeks notice to move .
    So i just have to sit back and wait dont i?

    MAny thanks curlysue

    Oh do not get me started on "assignment orders".
    We know we are moving, we know where we are going and he knows his start date but because desk officer is so busy? the assignment order will be delayed.
    DE can't/won't assign an address to us until that assignment number is on the 1132's......

    .....and this is progress?????

    Re: Still no posting oder!

    I feel for those of you with bigger issues at hand than just me wanting a job and income, I really do. As before, it's more him I'm worried about as a really rubbish job could be coming his way...and that'll be awful for him...

    Re: Still no posting oder!

    What the f... is your problem, if you are bother about my post just dont answer.OK?
    And to be anoused he loves his job and he will never be able to see how the job is before he gets there and then it will be to late anyway for at least another 2 years.
    Dont brush everybody over the same brush it all depends on trade and rank anyway what kind of job he is going to get.AND HE HAS GOT A TRADE, so all his postings are going to be tha same job.
    I am supporting my husband fully otherwise i wouldnt have moved 6 times in the past 7 years.
    So any more sarcastic comments, bring it on girl!

    Re: Still no posting oder!

    Sorry to butt in, but i was just reading this thread and i think you may have got your wires crossed Curly. I think what DD was saying is she feels for people such as yourself who have lots of things to worry about. Rather than herself who is worried about what job she can get and how this will affect her other half, as in her ranting at him cos her job is pants. I didn't take it as a sarcastic comment at all. Correct me if i'm wrong though anybody


    Edited cos it's too bloody early to be spelling right!!
    well handbags at the ready we're off! c'mon keep up..

    Well, thanks for that TinkyWinky...I was wondering who Curlysue was aiming at...

    To clarify what I meant - i.e. read the damn post - is that my main concern is ME getting a job. And I feel for people who have much more complicated concerns i.e kids, schools etc. as it's a nightmare enough for us at the moment.

    Or is that STILL being "sarcastic"?


    Jesus! If I'd wanted to have a go at you, trust me, I'd have just done it. No punches usually get pulled on this site - which is one of the best things about it but I tend to be quite nice...my mistake
