MTDs for fitness

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by ScotsmanRicky, Apr 11, 2006.

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. Our TAC shares location with a Sigs unit and while waiting on our recruits to clean rifles was looking at their notice board and seen a memo addressed to their PSAO regarding fitness. What it said was that all soldiers in their brigade who pass their ITD/MATTs for fitness will be paid 4 MTD for the time put in to pass the tests.

    Has anyone else heard of this or are getting it? Dont think its should be required to bribe blokes into getting fitter but not gonna sniff at 4 days free beer tokens for passing some buckshee fitness tests either.

  2. Has been discussed before. 2 Sig Bde units can also pay 1/4 days pay for gym visits (/membership)

    Not enough I think, its a bit like overtime so should be paid time and a half ;)

    Scots,

    Consider it a payment (bribe) in lieu of having the pride or self motivation to maintain the fitness required for role. Not as enticing then, is it?

  4. Duke,

    It shouldnt be required as I said, however as a tax-dodging student leach on the world I could use the extra money. Its like my other job as pornstar I do it for free but the cash helps :wink:

    Well that explains it. Soap dodging students, mutter...mumble....
     
  6. Its when you go around asking the blokes for their cats arses and taking home the spare rat packs on Sundays that you know cash is a bit tight....

  7. Nothing wrong with boil-in-the-bags going in the kettle especially if they're chocolate pudding!

    Scotsman, you're not one of the pair of Jockineese PTIs who've been on OP Massive for the last few years are you?
     
  8. Gluck,

    Nah that aint me, pretty sure the one your thinking of has moved to America and is on the beach pointing everywhere!

  9. Sounds familiar - probably cheaper getting a tan that way than maxing out on the sunbed!

    Regards to the Quaff! Does he still have those gay leather ear straps on his para helmet?
     
  10. Ah the Quaff!

    Always suprised Ive never read about any of his antics on here!

    Yeah he does, and last time I seen him on the piss he had his one-eyed monster on his bellend trying to impress the young chicks!
