Stand by to make a personal contribution to home to duties as well!!!

If that happens they really can shove it.
Have heard it quoted that we will have to pay for the first mile, also Training allowance may stay as it was called something else by the TA and RAuxaF, hence caused confusion in the system. Have seen nothing in writing however.

Any ideas about how would one decide how much the first mile of a train journey costs? Anyway, given the recruitment footprint of an RNRU, this wouldn't save any noticable amount, surely? Lots of people come from right at the edge of the travel expense limit, which I think is currently 40 or 50 miles.
 
Bounty - £1000+ tax free how times have changed!

Many moons ago when I served in the RMR I cannot remember the exact figure for bounty [I have had half my brain removed since, must have been the memory bit] I do know the local TA unit in town recieved three times as much as the RMR at the time.

Even with parachute bounty it was still a poor offering compered to the TA

Mate of mine was serving in the Artillery TA at the time, saying I was stupid we get more money blah! blah! blah!.

In the RMR we shed blood to get that green hat and those para wings and wore that hat with pride. Couple of extra bob would have been ok though.

The govt is saving zillions by not paying out where they should pay out. Country is practically run by volunteers. Only problem with volunteer work is the money is crap!! Mind the ones running the courses seem to do ok out of it.

If we start asking for pension, they WILL take away Bounty.
e.g. 28 days training each year - how little pension will that accrue ?
versus
Bounty - £1000+ tax free

No brainer - do not even think about pension
