that is the link for the pay scale which i don't understand.. can any once give me a rough estimate on what the pay is once you passed basic.
once you've finished your trade
and once you get posted to the field army,
(estimates for trades)
and how long you have to wait before each pay rise, Thanks
 
Way too many variables and not enough detail. Why not just accept that as a new boy, you will start at 13k and move to a rate of somewhere between 16-18k once you are trained?

well no matter what job it is the final question once you know everything else about your job is whats the pay? correct me if am wrong
 
See? Even better now. Be happy!

Ps You still don't give any detail to work with. You RMP? Inf? Cav? RE? AGC(SPS)? what? Can't work out anything without knowing all that?

No one joins the army for good pay, its a lifestyle not just a job, money should be the least of your worries. 13k as a recruit and then usually rises to 16-18k after 6 months in your unit, also depends on your trade.

'with one hand the army giveth pay, with the other it doth take half the fecker away'
remember its all ok on paper, maybes not in practice for a while. if you really want to join David, just say **** the money and enjoy it all as a bonus to having a roof over your head and several meals for pennies a day. Put down the rolex catalouge for a while though

I'm guessing not .............. and not entirely based on his lack of enthusiasm for alcohol. The words "gobby" and "cretin" spring to mind.

ill be gobby to any one who thinks their a smart ass towards me weather i fit in or not, its a career, its not scouts
 
craig, take a deep breath. it's the internet, it's full of idiots (including you at the moment), you don't have to justify yourself to anyone.

i too find it funny how, whenever people ask about pay in the army (which is only fair enough) some people start gobbing off about principles and morals. unfortunately one cannot live off serving the queen alone, and being able to afford the odd (or dozen) pint would be nice too. nevermind

the bad thing about modern media is that everybody has a voice :twisted:
