Op Tour Tax-Bonus

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. Just heard on the BBC that Des Browne is set to announce that soldiers will get a lump sum bonus on completion of an Op tour which will equate to their tax over that period.

    Great news ... but it seems it will only apply to the junior soldiers. This seems a little devisive as I am sure that the tours I have been on most people have worked as hard as each other. In fact the more rank you have, often the less down time you get.

    Anyway as ever I will believe it when I see it and the devil will be un the detail!
     
  2. Looks like that cash has just been diverted to a more meaningful and worthy cause.
