Was mobilised for a tour last year, during which in the TA world I reached the date for promotion to Lt. Rightly or wrongly, the CO in theatre saw fit to give me the promotion on the basis of the letter from TA MCM Div. However after several months of enquiring (after the promotion), it finally emerged that I shouldn't have been given the promotion as you are mobilised in a rank and stay at it whilst mobilised. However, the Adjutant (and CO) assured me that an application for pay of acting rank would be submitted (and apparantly was in Jan). However I am now back in the UK and chasing up the issue as I have not heard anything, nor seen any back pay. I have asked my TA Adjt to chase this up, with no joy. The TA welfare officer, with no joy (as in results - he has been trying!). I am now at a loss for what to do. It wouldn't have been a drama if they had said at the time I wouldn't get the pay, but the inference was that I would receive the extra pay. I've been told that the paperwork has been sent off to 'Glasgow' (again, implying that back pay should appear at some time). Where in 'Glasgow', nobody knows. JPA presents an ideal opportunity to slope shoulders, so I am simply bashing my head against a brick wall. I'd be grateful for some advice on how to proceed.
