Thanks. I went in to my local unit and they asked how I knew it had changed. I said that I had seen it on army web. They did not get the letter until the Friday before it went up. Obviously not all units were forewarned. the local pay office covers quite a big station so should have known.
Funny old thing I only found out the day after the new rules came in. call me a cynic, but it was very convenient timing to avoid a rush. I wouldnât believe the army would do that, I thought this tactic was reserved for pensions.
