Does Training Expense Allowance still exist? When I was in during the last century we could claim T.E.A. if we had to go to the TAC from work and therefore needed to get a meal out because we couldn't get home in time for one. This circumstance applies to me and to a lot of others I would imagine. Our Pay Clerk had never heard of it. Is it still available? If Drill nights are going to be C1 then it might help a bit for those who it applies to.
