AFF Survey Explores the Impact of an Overseas Posting on Army Families

Has your Army family been posted overseas in the last three years? Have you returned to the UK after an overseas posting? The Army Families Federation (AFF) has released a new survey to help them to gain a better understanding of the impact of an overseas posting on Army families.

Share your experience

They want to hear about your family life overseas: what works well and where improvement is needed compared to Army life in the UK.

Their short survey asks families to consider whether they were able to make an informed choice about their posting before accepting it.

You'll have the opportunity to share your experiences of housing, education, healthcare, employment and welfare support for your posting, and all evidence gathered by the charity will inform their work with MOD and service providers to improve the overseas experience for families now and in the future.

Demolition of the Last Chimney of Kingsnorth Power Station - Thursday 22nd March, 10am


The final chimney at Kingsnorth Power Station is due to be demolished on Thursday 22nd March at 10am.   The demolition was originally due to take place on Thursday 8th March but was postponed due to the weather conditions that week.

Kingsnorth is currently the second tallest structure in Kent after the TV Transmitter Mast at Dover. After its demolition, the second tallest structure will be the Transmitter Mast at Wrotham.

If you'd like to witness the moment when it comes down, choose a viewing point from the map below.  Riverside Country Park is an ideal spot but is likely to be popular with visitors that morning and parking might be difficult.
