Having recently been Caseveaced from theatre followed by a stay in Smelly Oak, I am trying to get a definitive answer on what exactly the score is with various allowances. 1. I have previously been told that LSA stops from the day that you are discharged from hospital as you are still classed as operational while you are there however good old JPA has stopped it from the day I left theatre. 2. Operational allowance. I originally heard the rumour that if you got casevaced then you got the full 6 months worth, this was susequently confirmed by someone from my unit but they told me it had been canned the week before i was injured due to too many people coming home with ingrowing toenails and the like. I have since been told though, by a clerk, that this was never the case but it is supposed to be coming in shortly, as soon as the details are finalised. As it stands, this was stopped on the same day as my LSA, ie that day I flew out of theatre. Forgive me for sounding like a money grabbing barsteward but I am a big believer that the Army doesn't give much away and any free money is gratefully recieved, especially as my wife has had to run around after me due to injuries caused by Jackie the Iraqi.
