Not sure if I am going over old water here (tried doing a RR search but results were a bit random). The powers that be decided to remove the training allowance payable to reserves attending drill nights from April 2006. The reasoning I heard were that "the vast majority of reserves go home to eat before going on to their unit". I'd be interested to know if this really is the case throughout the whole RNR? My experience is common throughout my unit but wonder if it is different at other units? The removal of the Â£3.25 training allowance may not seem a great deal but when I consider the cost of eating in the galley (funnily enough, about Â£3). Maybe I'm tight, I do squeak when I walk.
