Alright; I joined the TA at the end of September, and have had my army No. since early october. I have also managed to rack up about 15 or so days (I joined at the perfect moment in the training cycle, and have been away almost every weekend since I was attested) and have spent about Â£60-Â£70 on diesel taking recruits to a recruit weekend. So far, I have not seen a sniff of any money; which is particularly annoying as I am out of pocket for the travel; being a student and no longer having a weekend job, money is now getting very tight. I have continually badgered my unit Admin Officer about it, and I appreciate that there is little he or my unit can do once it is in Glasgow's hand's. When, then, can I expect my pay to start arriving? Can I expect TA pay to always be irregular and in arrears, or will the system 'catch up' with me once I start being paid, so that I can expect to see it more promptly?
