If its any consolation mine hit the bank on Friday 1 Aug - not bad from 1 Apr - only 4 moths to press a few buttons.
I had to do some adjatating with the RAO as well and the poor civi pay clerk was basically told not to phone back again - my advice - go for it, phone them every day then three times a day etc they'll soon get the message that this needs paid to the soldier.
I tried once but just basically got told they wouldn't discuss it over the phone (OPSEC, apparently) and that I should go through the RAO. I told them that, duh, I had indeed already been through the RAO to no avail which oddly enough, was why I phoned in the first place but this was met with what can only be described as a frosty response reiterating the party line.
I really think you'd be better off getting up to Glasgow and chaining yourself to the doors of the pyramid sponge cake-at least you'll make an impression.
