Is that worth a crate...? (or at least a 6-pack)

OVERSEAS ALLOWANCE RATES ARE SO HARD TO FATHOM

THERE are great disparities of Local Overseas Allowance (LOA) paid to married and married unaccompanied and single personnel, particularly in Brunei.

While I accept that different ranks attract different rates of LOA (clearly officers beans are more expensive than a corporals beans) what I don’t accept is the variation in percentage of the married accompanied (no kids) that the single or unaccompanied soldier attracts.

Why does each rank attract a different percentage of the equivalent ranked married accompanied man? Surely the rate for the rank has been determined, so there should be a set percentage?

Why is the lowest percentage in Brunei less than half the lowest percentage anywhere else? – WO1 J M Challis, JHCHQ, Netheravon.
