Those dates relate to CTC and were given by the pay office. They relate to the first and last full days off. Not heard anything to the contrary, but if in CTC, just pop in to ask.Is this accurate still? Looking at booking a holiday but ive seen a fee different dates floating around

As always dates liable to change due to security status. Anyone booking holidays must buy cancellation insurance.
Ninja's dates are, unsurprisingly, correct. My son has been given his training plan for the year from CTC and the dates match. Easter is really early this year, hence the anomaly.
I've just heard from my nod that the Easter dates aren't right. Can someone please let me know?
Silly question, but people are looking at the 2018 dates aren't they?
By the very nature of Easter being the first sunday following the full moon after the spring equinox, it varies year to year. The dates on here will include previous years as well as this year.
Hi yep I'm looking at the dates for 2018 at the head of this sticky post.
Possibly the dates for his troop are different for a specific reason such as exercises and asset availability or possibly this particular troop is earmarked as rapid recall/standby for Op Temperer, as a contingency plan.Hi yep I'm looking at the dates for 2018 at the head of this sticky post.

Bottom line is if he knows the dates his leave isn't, then presumably he should know the dates his leave is.
I have a 19 year old son, so can definitely relate to comms issuesWhat is rapid recall/standby for Op Tempered?
I agree that he should know what his dates are if he knows what his dates are but teenagers and communication with parents has been frowned upon since the beginning of time so we have to scrape together eveything we can and see what the end result is, ha ha.
It's quite complex and depends on the individual's age, stage of training, declared home address, marital status and mode of transport required.Can anyone tell me how many travel warrants home the Nods get please?
