Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sky news just said backdated to April this year.

  2. Because of course it wasnt any less dangerous in April Last Year or more so April 2004!
    I think the lads from 1 PWRR will beg to differ on that one!
    IMHO i think it should be from the start of Combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
     
  3. Rumour has it that it may only apply to private soldiers. Has anyone heard any more?

    What's the bet the CSA will try & nick it off divorced dads in theatre!
     
  10. So this won't affect some of our LCpl/Pte's on Tax Credits and put them above the level to recieve benefits then?

    HMMMMM raises a sceptical eye and awaits the announcement that R&R flights will now cost £2,300!!
