Hi Stu,

 

My OH is in the Army and we are in the process of transferring. There are quite a lot of us on here, do a search for ADF or Military. I can't really offer any advice at the moment as our application had been delayed due to medical issues but the are loads on here that will be able to help.

 

All the best

JO

:laugh:Hi there we transferred with the ADF.Arrived here in the Shire on 4th May.It all happened so fast only now am I taking that deep breath and thinking OMG.O/H expressed an interest 2006 but with oversea commitments did not really do much else about it.We got invited for an interview August 2008.We spent about 5 hours learning all about the ADF Then we sat in front of the board(a COL,Capt.doctor) got asked lots of questions i.e How would I cope as a wife.What my O/H had to offer the ADF etc.All straight forward and painless.15 minutes later they said yes and we were on cloud nine and off to the local boozer(The Coal Hole) to have few sociables.

Then it was full steam ahead .Getting paperwork(civvy and military) together.We were granted our visa early March 09 and flew here 4th May.O/H has been posted to a reservists unit and has to commute about 30 mins each way.I am still trying to find my feet.Job front is pretty bad at the mo.The one thing that is pretty hard to adjust too is the lack of the Army family.The housing can be anywhere not always near your unit and its for all services.So as a wife you really need to get on with it and make your own life.Not a bad thing really.

I hope this helps get in touch if you want to know anything else.

Good luck:laugh:

We have been here just over 2 yrs, love it. Husband is going to E Timor for a year, so there is still those commitments here, children love it, took a while to settle in as we are in country vic and you have to commute to most places but have been working at the local hospital for nearly two years which makes a hugh difference. Good luck with everything, we left Catterick to come here. Used to live in Allenby Road.
