Hi, I’m looking to join as an officer, my husband is already in (away at present). If I am lucky enough to get in. Between us, will we be entitled to a house? Bearing in mind there will be times we will be miles apart (unaccompanied serving). One will be in the mess, but can the other have a house? We have no children, but we have a dog. As much as my career is important, we won’t be getting rid of our dog if we aren’t entitled to have a house.

Hi, an officer of which armed force? I would recommend speaking to someone from their branch or the recruitment officer as they will have all of the information.

In a nutshell, yes, one of you could apply for a house and one of you live in the Mess. However, there are rules about entitlement to accommodation based on one spouse of a married couple being given primacy, how far apart you are serving, if you own a house,

It's not something for your AFCO staff or 'branch personnel'; there will be a Welfare Officer at a unit that can advise and all applications for housing are made online.
