Is this accurate still? Looking at booking a holiday but ive seen a fee different dates floating around
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.

I would definitely check those dates as Good Friday is the 30th,I would of though a week before,a week after Easter would be more the norm, but this is the RM ;)

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?

CTC Easter leave is confirmed as the two weeks 31 Mar - 15 Apr. Not sure what your Nod is up to so can not comment on his particular set of circumstances, but leave for everyone else is as above. If still in doubt, give the Welfare team in CTC a call (not the trg staff!!)

He just said that the dates I have for Easter which are those on here are apparently wrong but I haven't heard what the actual dates are. When/if I find out I'll let you 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.

Just in case nobody can give you a definitive answer on the forum today about 2018 Easter leave dates below is the telephone number of Welfare Information Officer at CTCRM:

Telephone 01392 414337

Apparently the office isn't staffed on Mondays but should be able to help Tuesday to Friday between 0815 and 1450. Or perhaps leave a short message on the answer machine and someone will get back to you.

Hope that this helps. Moveable feasts, eh? :)

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.

Bottom line is if he knows the dates his leave isn't, then presumably he should know the dates his leave is.

What 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.

I have a 19 year old son, so can definitely relate to comms issues ;)

Op Temperer is basically security duties if the UK raises the threat state from critical to incoming, or something like that. Milling around airports carrying a gun, stuff like that, to release Armed Police for more pressing issues at hand.

Eg: Key locations including Buckingham Palace to be guarded by armed... http://dailym.ai/2qU2mWo

It's quite complex and depends on the individual's age, stage of training, declared home address, marital status and mode of transport required.

In ballpark figures, most recruits can usually expect to get a free UK rail warrant for each of the three main leave periods and one weekend.

Fuller details in JSP 752 volume 2, Chapter 5, Section 1, Get You Home (Early Years) https://www.gov.uk/government/publi...gulations-for-expenses-and-allowances-jsp-752

I don't want to contradict what @Ninja_Stoker has said because I might of misread the thread but I'm sure as a recruit you can only get travel warrants in Phase 1. I think you are entitled to 3 which normally works out as:

Long weekend (Week 5)
Leave period
Long weekend (Week 15)

Unless anyone else has experienced different?
