The issue of dependant passes for Beachley Barracks has been a perennial problem and I would like to apologise for the inconvenience it has caused.

From next week new dependant passes will also be issued from the Welfare Office.  This is to allow access to the NAAFI shop and gym during their respective opening timings.  Passes can be issued to all spouses and children over 16 years old, of service persons living on the Beachley estate – regardless of cap badge, unit or service.

Children under 16 years old must be escorted on Camp and therefore cannot be issued a pass.  Passes will not be issued to temporary guests or family members who do not live in Beachley.  The passes will be valid for a maximum of 2 years, or until the end of your posting – whichever is the earliest.

The application and printing will be completed at the Welfare Office.  We will require the following information:

·         Service person’s number
·         Proof of identification of the applicant: passport/driving licence
·         Proof of address
·         One passport photograph

The old dependant passes will still remain valid.  Car passes will still be issued by the Provost Staff from the Guard Room.
