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. Pay rate for new entrants is currently at £13,012, after what period does this go up to the Private level 1 Rate of pay of £16,226??

    Is this after completion of 14 week basic training or at the end of phase 2 training. the local careers office was a bit unsure today :?

  2. I'm not sure but im going to reply to the thread because i'd like to know myself when someone eventially answers it.
  3. believe its at the end of phase 2
    EG: When you are trained/ready to join your reg and go on operations
