Just a quick question on pay rates, i'm curious to know why a TA private starts on 40.95 as opposed to a regular private who receives 44.45 ? "As a member of the TA, you will receive base pay equivalent to that of the Regular Army" as stated on the army website. I thought it may be the magical x-factor but the maths don't work out for it to be that, was unsure if it relates to the fact that TA recieve a bounty ? Also if there are any pte's on increment level four could they let me know what their daily rate is thanks. Sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere. Grollier.
