    It depends. Are you are asking about an advance of pay for house purchase? Or are you posted to/from overseas soon?

    If not, and you are just looking to pay off your Barclaycard (seen your other post) then the answer depends on which side of the bed your WO PSF got out of. Even if sympathetic (almost certainly won't be if this is the case), any advance would be recovered in full from your next month's salary.

    I've been retired for a while now (Sgt Pers Admin) but in my day advances of pay were only - exceptionally - authorised to meet an unforeseen emergency. As I remember saying many times, Christmas and/or overspending on credit cards are neither unforeseen nor emergencies.
