The bounty rates are shown on the Army's website as "first year Â£x, second year Â£y" etc. What is meant by "first year"? Is it the first year in the TA or the first year that you qualify for bounty? I've been in the TA for a few years and so far I've never qualified for my bounty (mainly due to work commitments - I've done loads of weekends but getting time off for camp has always been a problem). However, this shouldn't be a problem from now on. If I qualify for bounty at the end of this year what rate would I get? Thanks.
