  1. Hi,

    Just wondering if there is a location where i can find out the current exchange rates.

    Im stationed In the US and recieve my wages in pounds. Obviously if I use my UK bank card in ATMs I get charged by the bank im using, my UK bank and get a shit rate so AGC cheque cashing is the way forward. I know the military exchange rate loosely follows the civvy one. Thing is I don't want to hang on for the clerk coming out if the exchange rate i'll get is only just higher than what i'll get from an ATM.

    Basically is there a central place which i can find out current military exchange rates to dollars.

  2. Yes there is such a page on the Defence Intranet, but I don't have it to hand at the moment.

    It also should show the FFR on the LOA Tables as well.
