Higher/Lower Spines of Pay

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whatever the armed forcces pay review board decides to change their mind too.
  2. Basically your trade will have been graded Higher or Lower and this may also vary according to rank within a specific trade. It has nothing to do wth your personal performance and is solely dependent on how the trade (and rank within trade) has been assessed relative to the rest of the army. Where the TA trade has a direct regular equivalent, the assessment is on the basis of the regulars so if yours is Higher you may be benefitting from things like responsibilities that don't actually apply in TA world. Essentially, the "cleverer" the job, the more chance it will be in the Higher band.
