As a TA soldier I was quite annoyed when informed by my SPS staff that I had 30 days left of this year to be paid for after this I would not get paid for anything else until after Apr 08. As I am attached currently to a regular unit (not through FTRS) this put a cut off day on when it would end until after April. I think it would have been nice to be informed how many days I had left before I started my attachment. I was also informed that there is talk of cutting the 117 days down to something even less than this figure. This I think is a stupid idea, if there are no FTRS posts for your Regt then something else should be created for people who wish to do something more than one weekend a month and 4 wednesday nights a month. Maybe I'll be informed I'm just whining but I thought I needed to air my views and see what came back to me.
