Has anyone heard what the armed forces payrise will be for 2008/09? I've scoured the net but can't seem to find anything. I'm asking as by the time I get in it will be next year and I'm just interested at what the pay will be. Also the regiment I'm planning on joining is based in Germany and I've heard you get extra pay for that but how much would that be? Thanks guys. edit to add: Also on the current payscale the rank of Private has a load of different grades with slightly higher pay each time. Do you go up a grade after a certain amount of time? or how does that work?
