Extremely bone but I swear not a Wahhhhh question

Minimum Days

What is considered a "Day" ? Is a Drill night a day or only the w/e or is x amount of drill nights = 1 day

I read some blurb about 27 "Days" I find it hard to believe that you can get your bounty after only 27 drill nights and not w/e or annual camp

Rereading the original question, they refer to Man Training Days. Normally a training evening is 1/4 day (sometimes half), and weekends 2.5 days (sometimes 2 or 2.25 depending on unit).

So, 12 days out of camp training is not a lot. Less than 5 weekends a year....

Realistically depending on unit policy I have worked on 10 days of evenings (4 x 1/4 x 10 allowing for leave periods) + 5 weekends (2.5 x 5) = 22.5 days + 5 days in camp training = 27.5 if on reduced camp/short course.

Since there is normally a requirement for at least 10 days continuous training the more likely figure is 33.5

Must have changed since I was an Independent.

27 days commitment was 15 days in camp + 12 days out of camp (i.e. weekends or other courses). (Obligatory days are included in the out of camp days).

1/4 day was 2-5 hours, 1/2 day was 5-8 hours, 1 day was 8+ hours.

Part days were for payment purposes, not for Bounty.

Less than 2 hours was not paid, though travel expenses could be claimed.
