I did a job with the RAF once for a few days and when I turned up at the station a helpful clerk asked a few questions and worked out all the claims I could get. The army is pi55 poor at letting you know what you can get and we, the soldiers, must loose hundreds of quid over a career. RESPOD fo my bike was one example - a year into it I find ut I can claim! Please put down what you can claim, for wat and how! PIE etc when you are in a hotel.
