Exercise Claymore November?

Hello friends, I got call up for Overseas ICT on 30 April 2020 for exercise Claymore 18 November - 06 December.

Very slow but I read that exercise Wallaby has been cancelled so is there any chance that Claymore will be cancelled also?

Would really prefer not to go...lost my job because of Covid and now still looking for job. Don't think future employer will be happy to find out I'll be away for training for a month once I start new job...

If not wrong, you can defer ICT if you start a job within 6 months of ICT

CO told us last year during ICT, this overseas close to impossible to defer because the air tickets are already booked for us early...

So you wouldn’t try to defer if it is really happening just because he said close to impossible to defer?

I thought SAF have already suspended all overseas exercise this year? Maybe you can confirm with your unit again.

"SAF has suspended all large scale overseas exercises"
