Travel Money

#1
Just been informed by admin staff that 52p is being taken off my travel allowance every time I attend TA training - something to do with HDT. This is on top of TEA being removed from the TA.

Has anyone else heard of this?

I got told that as well, something to do with needing a travel warrant? Their reasoning being if I didn't have a travel warrant, I was being lazy and didn't deserve my full amount!

You have never been able to claim HDT and TEA together. If you have been doing so, pack all your belongings in to a small bag and leave now!

You do the first mile (or something) for free anyway. If 52p matters so much, park up a mile short of the TAC and walk in.

The point, obviously poorly made, was the gradual erosion of allowances. Until recently a TA soldier would be paid TEA for attending a training evening - this has now been discontinued.

Again, until now a TA soldier has had his/her travel re-imbursed in full - apparently the new regime removes 52p off this re-imbursement. OK not much, but a continual change in terms of service that have been slipped in, and over the year will add up.

Boofuckinghoo. With all the problems being encountered by the modern TA, you're worried about 52 fucking pence? I you go outside and give yourself a good talking to.

Complaining about the loss of TEA? Are you a fat biffer that needs all the free food he can get?

You really are a c0ck - the point of this forum is to make others aware of changes to Terms of Service. 52p may be little, but over the year adds up, and for junior soldiers might make a difference.

If you have nothing of value to add then f**k off to the NAAFI where you inadequate contibutions might be thought of as funny. Judging by your previous contibutions you rarely have anything of value to add, and seek to cover your inadequacy by abusing others - go out and get a life rather than being the sad geek with no friends who sits on chat rooms with 2464 posts

Have a word with yourself. Even if you attended Drill Nights every week and two weekends a month that only adds up to ( (52+24)x0.52 ) £39.52 a year. If anyone can't survive without that, then they have bigger financial problems than being in the TA can solve.

Has anyone else noticed that those that are always complaining about pay are those that do little else other than the TA or have shit civvy jobs? Certainly looking at my unit, those that moan about such issues are usually the ones that are the biggest drain on funding without actually being of much use to the wider Army.

Ahh, you've got me here. I do find it amusing that you call me a geek yet you're the one that's so sad as to notice that 52p is missing from your payslip and have actually bothered to find out why.

You didn't answer whether you were a fat biffer or not.

2465 posts now, and still nothing of value - get out, and get a life - you're a sad example of both TA and your trade

I really hope it's a joke.

That said, in the past my unit has asked for a contribution to breakfast so we can get the bacon rolls in rather than boil in the bag.

Sad indication of where things are going. How long until we have to pay to top up our own ammunition for exercise... rather like paintball.

Seen as I've been told, I might aswell add another post.

Are you a fat biffer and are you such a loser that you need 52p everytime you go into the TAC?

In theory, you could still claim the TEA (Training Evening Allowance or somesuch, nowt to do with PG Tips) until the advent of JPA as it was a form of a missed meals allowance.

However, you could only get it when you were going direct from your place of work to the TAC and thus couldn't get your evening meal at home.

Obviously this would then have an implication for your "normal" travel claim. In the olden days, and until this was understood, it was the norm for the TEA box to be ticked almost at random on the pay sheets.

Thus it wasn't really withdrawn, but the rules as to how it should be claimed were actually applied.
