It is a condition of service in recognition of their inherently mobile lifestyles, frequently remote bases and terms of service, that Regular Service (including Full-Time Reserve Service Full Commitment) personnel are provided with a satisfactory accommodation solution which can take the form, subject to marital status and individual circumstances, of either publicly provided family or single accommodation (or an appropriate substitute) either at, or within an appropriate distance from, their duty unit, or an appropriate allowances package.
