My life is so empty that I started looking at the mystery which is when do we get paid. I looked back over the last 6 months, and it has been steady over that period. We get paid paid "the day before the 2nd Wednesday in the month". Or the 2nd Tuesday in the month, unless the 1st of the month is a Wednesday, then we get paid on the first Tuesday. This may only work for my regiment (33sigs) or brigade (42 NW) - not sure. This may have been put up before and I may just be slow in working it out. Obviously this doesn't take into account them actually calculating it correctly. Or the initial 9 month period as a recruit when they dont pay you anything and then it all comes as one.
