Was going through some old pay slips the other day. After I left basic trg and went to my first unit, it struck me that, although I deployed on various exs over the alloted LSSA timeframe (9 days?), I still didn't receive any LSSA. I then suddenly remembered someone telling me that there is a period after you complete your training where you are not entitled to LSSA, even if you deploy on ops or on exs over 9 days. I think it was about 6 months. Can any of the SPS/Clks out there shed any light on this? I am not after re-claiming money back; simply interested in why this is!!?? Is that still the case? After all, if you are trained and deploy with your field unit, what is the reasoning behind not getting LSSA?
