    AFCOs normally only close over Xmas/New Year unless they are single person offices (there are only a few of these).

    The guy who allocates entry dates maybe on leave but he does have an opposite number who should be able to give entry dates when he's away.

    I’ll try ringing my careers advisor today then although I believe he may be a single man AFCO!

    Thank you

    A single man AFCO.... Stuff of legends. Imagine who and how many bosses you’d need to piss off to get that posting!

    Gain access to his notebook and all your questions will be answered.

    Look for this, it should be underneath a dog eared copy of Soldier mag from 1995.

    I can only imagine a comparison with that Japanese soldier discovered on a remote Pacific island in 1975 unaware that the war had ended thirty years previously.
