Hi all, I am an ex TA member of 6 years and two tours but have recently got a place at RMAS for a regular commission. The RAO seem to think that I lose my Cpl pay scale and all my LSA days, and this is reflected in my first pay packet having been dropped to new entrant OCdt pay which is less than half of a Cpl gets. However, I have been told before I should keep the pay, the same as when a regular soldier enters for a commission. Could anyone clear this up for me as the RAO dont seem to know whats what and I dont really want to take a 50% paycut and lose my LSA days! thanks.
