    I am completing my Student Finance Application at the moment and am stuck on the question about whether either of your parents has lived or worked outside the UK and Islands since September 2013. My parents are divorced and my dad is in the military, having been stationed overseas for the past 4 years. It asks me for his addresses for the last three years but due to him being in the military all I have are BFPO box numbers which are not accepted as addresses.

    Do I need to try and get full addresses or is it different due to him being employed by the UK military and I don't have to put that he has lived and worked outside the UK in the past 3 years? I have little contact with my dad as it is and will not receive any financial help from him.
