  1. Hi, my other half got his promotion to lcpl in september (ish) and has a course/ex to do for 10 days as of this coming sunday before his pay rises etc but he's also been told about a retention bonus he can get too for being a lcpl? Neither of us had herd of this, does anybody know anything about it? how much it is? when he can apply for it? and how long it takes to come through? I think its just for VM's although i may be wrong. Thank you
