Just a quick thought on these In Year Saving Measures. I believe that it should be known as the "In Year Waste Of Money." Let me expand further: My Regt will still cost the MOD in military pay alone for the next 6 months (using lowest pay band and rough numbers) Rank No Annual Pay Cost Lt Col 1 Â£65,717 Â£32,858.50 Maj 3 Â£46,824 Â£70,236.00 Capt 6 Â£37,172 Â£111,516.00 WO1 1 Â£37,843 Â£18,921.50 WO2 7 Â£35,342 Â£123,697.00 SSgt 10 Â£32,572 Â£162,860.00 Cpl 4 Â£25,887 Â£51,774.00 Total Â£571,863.00 Which will be many times the amount that will be saved by stopping all payed TA training until April next year! Not a bad job if you can get it. 6 months to get some golf in. Has anyone else thought of this or is it just me being a cynic? As to my first question. Would Clarkson have agreed to save so little and still spend so much? Not to mention doing this in the TA's 101st year!
