I have been given a gleaming tip. If you want your pay statement sent to your home direct instead of to your unit ask your friendly admin staff. For my fellow admins: Log on as HR admin - personnel and pay details. Pull up the individual, hit the Person button. Go to the office tab and put HOME in the mail to box. I'm led to believe that the pay statement will arrive at your residence at work address with your post, addressed to Mr (or Miss/Mrs), not via your unit. Obviously no good for those stationed outside of the UK and for singlies but invaluable for people detached from their units ie black economy. Just make sure that your residence at work address has been updated!
