Iraq=does it attract the end of tour bonus

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. Does anybody know if you go to Iraq (Baghdad) on a 6 month tour and seconded to the British Embassy, do you receive the 6 month Operational Bonus as you do in Afghanistan and did on Telic.

    Also, does a member of the UK forces qualify for the Op Telic medal or does he/she get the Iraq Reconstruction Service Medal.

    Many thanks
     
  2. If you are on the embassy staff you are not part of UK ops in Iraq and don't get the various allowances or the medal, if you are part of the NATO mission there you are and do. That's what the members of the former group told me when I was part of the latter.
