  1. Hi all,

    Sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere, I did look but didnt find it if it has.

    Im considering joining the TA, the only obstacle would be the pay if I were to go on ops for 9 months.
    Would I only get the army pay for my rank/trade or the full amount I normally get in my civvy job.
    Bottom line is I wouldnt be able to take the pay cut over 9 months if I would just be getting army pay?

    Many Thanks
