Intrigued - average navy wage vs RAF wage?


I'm looking to join the navy, however loving maths as much as I do I want to know all the numbers. And so, I am wondering - what's the average wage of someone entering the NAVY (during/after training)? I understand in the RAF you will earn £18,000 a year during basic training, which after tax and NI comes down to £1300 a month according to this tax calculator ( Is the Navy comparable to this?

Cheers! :)

The wages and allowances are exactly the same in relation to branch/trade, employment, seniority, rank/rate and specialist qualifications. (Flying Pay, Submarine Retention Pay, Diving Pay, SF Pay, etc., etc)

The only differences are outgoings. When on a ship, for example, you don't pay any food or accommodation charges.
I think we stopped the Crabs having anything to do with Submarines after the M2 sank.
Foot's back in the door now though!!!! Crabs on flat tops. Next will be a crab officers on perishers!!!!!!! You know it - admit it - go on! Denial will only hasten the inevitable!!!! :p
