    I am being Md'd from training in para coy at catterick.

    They sent me on recall leave last week and I live in Devon so travel back is £120-£180 depending when I can book,

    I just got a call saying I need to be back for sunday night but they won't pay for my warrant.

    Is there any way I can claim this do you know? As a poor little trainee i only get £700 a month and £150ish is going to make a big hole in my budget for the month.

    help appreciated.

  3. If you are on official leave and you are called back to duty you can claim.

    If they gave you a warrant though, surely it must have been a return one so why can't you use the return ticket?

    They didn't give me a warrant as they cut us away late on a friday and I had the option of staying til monday to get a warrant or paying another recruit £20 to take me as far as bristol which is only £10 on a train.

    That's good to know I can claim it back, if I go back and forth a few times in a month I'll be eating out of dustbins!
