I heard a shocking and terrible rumour from a colleague just the other day. He claims that a mate told a mate of his who heard from a mate...that the army are going to completely axe the local overseas allowance paid to soldiers serving abroad. The above mentioned is renowned for random outbursts of cod crap and as such took it with a pinch of salt. that was until i recieved my paystatment this month with an AGC newsletter attached. A quick glance revealed SOME truth to the rumour (Not much but some). apparatly there are going to be some drastic alterations to the way we are paid LOA. Being a married Junior with two young sprogs, I rely on LOA so that I can by nappies and the like and have become quite acustomed to the extra notes in my sky rocket. Can anyone shed some light on this? are we really going to lose all that dosh?
