An advance decision was requested concerning an officer's entitlement to a dislocation allowance which was claimed when the home port of the vessel to which the member was assigned was changed and the quarters abroad the vessel were declared to be uninhabitable due to reconstruction. The officer, without dependents, was required to obtain non-government housing since other Government quarters were not available. The officer was not entitled to a dislocation allowance since, for this purpose, the permanent station of the officer was his ship, not the home port, and the allowance was payable only incident to a change of permanent station.
