CN - 8 years in and you still don't know how to get to your admin office and ask someone in your unit who knows? Are you sure you are 'commision' material? Just a thought.

Whilst you are undergoing Officer Training you will still be a soldier until you actually commission (which is why officers had soldiers' numbers at Sandhurst in pre-JPA days) so your entitlement to your 8 year bonus should in all fairness be unaffected. The world is not always fair so I would check with your admin office and get something in writing if possible.

Exactamundo Devex,

I hit my 8 year point while I was at the factory and fortunately for me I hit 8yrs comfortably prior to commissioning.

As Devex states you are a serving soldier until the clock strikes midnight on commissioning night so the entitlement is there for the taking. Just make sure it is swept up BEFORE you move to the dark side as retrospectively it may cause dramas.
