Reservist Uniform Upkeep Grant

Hopefully somebody out there has some experience of the above grant and can offer some guidance.

JSP 752 has a new entry as of Apr 19:

15.0408. Reservist Uniform Upkeep Grant (UUG). The UUG enables eligible
personnel to maintain those items of their authorised scale of outfit. The UUG is to cover
expenditure arising during the Tax Year (6 April to 5 April). Reservist SNCOs are entitled
to the full UUG for the year during which they become eligible, so long as they are required
to wear uniform in the course of undertaking training or other duties, and are on the
effective strength on the date on which payment is due

The JSP then helpfully states that the rates are contained with Army Dress Regulations; however the most recent version of those on MODNET are Jan '18 and predate the JSP

Now, I'm not expecting the lads and lasses to be turned into millionaires as a result, but it's likely to be worth in the order of £20. If they're entitled to it, they should get it, but need to know what the mechanism is.

TIA

In these egalitarian times where No 2 Dress is issued free of charge to all ranks, one wonders why SNCOs receive £25 less, yet still have the same uniforms to maintain.

Is SNCO No 2 Dress self-maintaining? We should be told. ^^

If officers are issued and may exchange No.2 dress, shouldn't your question be "Why should officers receive £25 more?"

SNCO No.2 dress is exchangeable, that's why the Upkeep Allowance is for mess dress.
 
Is £25 enough to get the soup stains out of SNCO mess dress? Asking for a friend.
