I'm amazed - last duty rumour I heard was that they were trying to drum up a bit more support.....they obviously know you!

I'm shocked. I would have thought such knowledgeable and ardent ARRSE supporter and would be one of the first to be invited.

I'll have a 'nice cup of tea and a slice of cake' on your behalf.

The thought did cross my mind!

I believe the unit allocations are being sent to the unit. SaBRE are sending them out to individuals.

My unit has got 18 places and now people are realising that there is no money incentive an awful lot are crying off. It's the Queen FFS, get a grip.

If you have being successful in being allocated some of the 1000 tickets for you and your employer, have they told you that you will have to pay for your own travel etc?

What sort of incentive do you want?

MTDs? Yup, perfectly acceptable use of MTDs. If your unit is not allowing MTDs it is a unit problem, not TA100.

Travel? Perfectly acceptable use of the travel budget. If your unit....as above.

Employer? Perfectly acceptable use....

This is all down to how your units view it. I have seen instructions covering central TA100 MTD budgets that units can apply for and explaining that travel arrangements will be released at a later date.

Start making noises in the HQ offices.

Our unit had leaflets encouraging soldiers to put in an application; later it transpired that the unit had also an allocation of tickets.

If one had been successful with one's application, then Sabre told you that travel had to be paid by yourself and your employer also. I assume that the unit will cover the expense when it takes up its allocation.

Sounds like some people have plenty of other opportunities to meet HM...

I am led to believe that my unit is laying on a coach for the day, there and back but then it brings into question the possibility of C1 training for insurance but how are the relatives (guests) catered for using MOD transport?

And does the invitation not say 'That the Queen commands...'?

Why C1? It is a duty with high AiS and retention value. MTDs all round.
Would you mind awfully explaining that to my Colonel. He has decreed 'No MTD, No Subsistance, No MMA'

Personally I'm going regardless of cost, but I do know of one or two Pte's who do not have the income.
