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. anyone
  2. £1506 IIRC
  3. Don't start spending it yet. Beware of JPA (a cynic might say that it will be used as an excuse for later payment therefore allowing Tony/Gordon to hold onto your cash for longer).
  4. hi is that not this years as that is what i got in april 2006, so there is no rise
  5. Ah sorry misread! Bugger!
  6. No rise has been indicated so far, hence £1506.
  7. A rise in bounty = extra spending on the armed forces. No election due = no need to spend money on armed forces. Therefore no increase in bounty.
  8. Recommendation 6: We recommend the following rates of Reserves’ Bounty
    from 1 April 2007:
    • Volunteer Reserve Forces Training Bounty – Year 1 £395, Year 2 £868,
    Year 3 £1,341 and Year 5 £1,556;
    • Ex-Regular Officers and Other Ranks Training Bounty – £350;
    • University Units Bounty – Year 1 £135, Year 2 £157 and Year 3 £191;
    • High Readiness Reserve Bounty – £395;
    • Sponsored Reserve Bounty – based on the Training Bounty with rates varying
    between 50 per cent and 100 per cent depending on training commitment;
    • Call-Out Gratuity – £473.
  9. And because of the intro date of JPA and the closure of Unicom, it has been 'advised' that unless the Bounty box has been ticked by today then the payment may be as late as May.

    If the box has been ticked by today then the payment should be on time as per normal....... (Knowing Glasgow??????)
  10. In Parliamentary speak " I refer you to my statement of Sun Feb 25, 2007 12:56 pm
