What A Soldier Is Worth

#1
The table below sets out the food costs of several different categories. A soldier is better off than a school kid, but worse off than a young offender. Of course, if you an MP you do much better, and you do not need to submit claims to the entitlement.

I hadn't realised that our MPs lived so frugally. Presumably to pay for the £20' odd per meal for them they would expect to receive an allowance of about £100?

Thing is if you submit a fraudulent claim as a soldier you get hung drawn and quartered. If you're a member (of Parliament) it is par for the course.

As usual, our MP's come out on top. God bless'em.

I don't understand the graph.

Is it showing how much food each grouping gets for the portion it pays for? Or is it showing the quality paid for? The amount paid per individual in each grouping?

If the latter, how does it differentiate between PAYD and the previous regime where it has not yet been superceded? I understand that that PAYD has strict portion control whereas the previous regime mostly allowed the piling of plates to happen.

It's from here:

Although the article does not explain how the figures were arrived at.
