Don't they get paid enough?

You would get a promotion grant. Can't rememer the exact amount but I think it is about £900. There are various factors though, mounted roles etc. It is to buy the red tabs, Staff Beret Badge and new labrador.

Some WO's I could understand (especially WO1 and RSMs) but SNCOs needing a clothing grant? Excepting mess dress, don't they issue all they need?

And the servicing costs on a Volvo Estate upgrade do not come cheap either! :D

I retired years ago and ever since have had to buy my suits, hats, Labradors, Volvos, and such gold plated fittings for the loo that I deemed necessary. Furthermore my pension is not keeping pace with inflation.

Whilst an allowance on commissioning seems reasonable I don't think it fair or equitable that promoted bureaucrats enjoy yet more allowances to buy their bloody uniforms. God help them in Civvie Street! The PM (QoS) in cape and blues is a figure of fun! Miss Moneypenny should advise her chap(ess) that The Great Unwashed just won't put up with much more Old Pals Act Expenditure.
