I'm due to attend a course for Bowman Training at Bicester. Now the whole thorny subject of PAYD is bothering me. Having checked JSP 456 I found in Section 2A paragraph 0212A Additional Regulations part c which says "c. Members of the Reserve Forces on reserve duty as a result of their duties are obliged to take meals in Service messes over 5 miles away from their permanent training centre are entitled to all meals at public expense for a period of up to 30 days." I think that says I don't have to pay when I'm on a course. Or is there something else I'm missing?
