Op Herrick, financial.
Guys, before i get drowned in torrents of abuse for asking such a cleft question.. hear me out!
If i was lucky enough to get through inf, CIC etc before Jan next year, what are my chances of being able to go on Herrick19? and if so, the most important question, who here has done it, and what state do you come home in financially.
for example some have told me you come home having been paid a 19k salary and 6k bonus which are in your bank untouched (so after tax about 21k?). others have told me no 6k bonus, some have said you pay your way out there and only end up with about 5k in the bank when you get home.
Basically, if i was to go out, with no outgoings back home, rent, council tax etc, what sum of money would i be looking to come back to, as i think this might be the most exciting way of getting a deposit for a house!
Thanks in advance

Well, in theatre you only need to pay for things like toiletries. You don't pay food or accommodation, you get paid LSA the lowest level of which is an extra £6.69 a day on top of your normal wage. After a 6 month tour you get your Op Allowance which is about £5.5k.ZARATHUSTRA: Tyrant, (Pseudo) Bully, Mad With Power and infamous Camberley Flat Thief.

I heard last month from someone from Lydd that no TA will be on H19, dont know how true this is, but the individual was well placed to know such things.dont touch me there, i dont even touch myself there!

If you are doing it just for the money then you are doing it for the wrong reason!The role of cavalry in war is to bring style and panache to what would otherwise be just an ugly brawl.

[QUOTE=Ben_surfsup;4537869]Cheers, so off the top of my mong head, thats what, about 22k per year before tax, working on (43.54 daily rate, 6.69 sep x 330 days ish.) and i guess the gov being the gov, even the op allowance is taxable, so come come with about 17.5k. seems reasonable! - if i am correct.
Well your sums are a bit out for a start. Your only on your for around 180 days, not 330. You only get the 6.69 while on tour. The op allowance isn't taxed. You don't have any outgoings whatsoever in the uk? You'll end up spending SOME money out there.
After Op allowance most pvt/ lance jack ranks came back with around 10k."Darling?Thats a bit of a girls name isn't it? The last person I called Darling was pregnant 20 seconds later!"

Depends if your unit if down for H19, if not you'll have issues in getting all your required training done after completing CIC.
Due to the way things are changing and the draw down of Combat troops then it's unlikely that you will be required, we're going from ground holding to Security Force Assistance.
With regards to the OP bonus I was told that H17 was the last time this was being offered, I may have misheard thoughGod is not on the side of the big battalions,
but on the side of those who shoot best.
