Pay at Sandhurst

#1
Hello all,

I commissioned from the TA Commissioning Course in October and have decided to take the plunge and go regular in May 2012 (I've confirmed my place on the course).

I was wondering does one still keep the rank-PAY (not the rank obviously) whilst training? In other words would I still get a 2LT pay rather than the substantially less Ocdt pay?

The money is NOT the reason i'm doing this but still it would be nice to know - I do have quite a lot of student debt to pay off after all.

A friend of mine who is a full-lieutenant said that the army cannot dock pay and he is going reg in January so can anyone shed light on this?

Thanks for (serious) responses.

I would imagine that because you are ending your TA employment and starting a regular employment you will drop down to basic pay. Im sure a pay wog will be along soon to set you straight.

Graduates get paid as 2Lt's anyway, only non-grads are on the Ocdt pay band.

A bloke in my platoon is a TA Lt but they are currently paying him as a non-grad. Be prepared to chase up the clerks!!

Here's the gen mate. If you join as a 2Lt then no dice. If you are a TA full LT, 3 months substantive, and you have it on JPA and a payslip to that effect you are enlisted with full LT pay. I think there s no dice with 2Lt as it is a probationary rank in the TA. PM me with any weird questions you have on the subject.
