2% for all.

Changes to LSA - seems easier to get.

FRI's for certain trades - High threat IED, REME avionic techs and Apache SNCO aircrew.

Slightly more pay for those in FOB's / PB's in Afghanistan.


Edit for minor factual changes.

anyone know whether the Op Allowance currently £13.08 per day will change?
Don't remember seeing that in there although i only had a quick scan. The only changes to seemed to be the unpleasant living allowance for FOB's and PB's. LSA did get 2% IIRC.

From page 23 "While we do not make recommendations on Operational Allowance, as it is outside our remit, we take it into account when considering our recommendations."

From the signal:

THE OPERATIONAL ALLOWANCE IS NOT REVIEWED BY THE AFPRB, BUT IS SET (AND FUNDED) BY HER MAJESTY’S TREASURY. FOLLOWING A MOD AND HMT REVIEW IT HAS BEEN DECIDED TO INCREASE THE OPERATIONAL ALLOWANCE BY 1.43 POUNDS PER DAY TO 14.51 POUNDS
