Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by homeless, Mar 29, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone out their want to have a bet on "will the bounty payments be on time this year" last year I waited until September... 8O :D
  2. Well if your bounty is late you should look at your own unit's admin. Once the form is filled in and signed by your OC it should take no more than about a month.

    If your admin office tells you any different it them covering up their own bad admin.
  3. Chuffed to fcuk.

    Can't wait, nice holiday for me!
  6. Forgot you were TA! :lol:
  7. Approx £1400 tax free for 29 days. To include a 4 mile walk with a bag on your back "attempt" to shoot a gun down a range, play with some NBC equipment talk about first aid Ohhh and watch some videos about health and safety....... Also risk the loss or suspension of your civvi job 365 days a year due to mobilisation and no pension for doing it. As many have said before it isn’t the money that makes us do it (but its nice) its just for the fun.... keep it fun and I’m init for life :D
  8. Unless of course you are in Basra when you are deemed not to be available foir training and...guess bounty.

  9. B2 Is that down to individual Regiments?

    I believe that our half of the deployment will qualify for Bounty, on the grounds that "If you're serving Queen and Country in sunny climes, you dam' well qualify for bounty"

    Unless that's been overruled?
  10. I do believe that some of the boys in downtown Basra HAVE qualified for bounty! Better check the list to be sure though BB.
  11. According to the latest Lessons of Iraq written by the defence committee, 'it is unreasonable that reserve personnel deployed on Op Telic should have to do additional service....we recommend that MoD waives this requirement'

    However, unless it has changed in the last couple of weeks the MOD still says you have to do the additional time. I remember Hoon said that it as well sometime earlier this year, nice chap that he is!

    Quite why they think you should have to do it, who knows?
