Not thought of asking at the recruiting office then?
Or searched for the posts all asking this same question?

It's around 13k a year for basic training and when you pass out and become a private your pay rises to £16,500, there or there abouts.

That's obviously before tax, like any job, the earnings per annum are typed up before tax.

You'll have food, rent, training, equipment and pretty much anything else you can think of for free, so no, you won't be skint.

I can't wait!

Most people will beast you for asking bone questions because they are easily asked at the Army Careers Office.

so u walk away with 1000 after tax right then yai have to pay for food housing and whatever else so realy the army if fucked up coz u get paid more as a trolly pusher in asda lollol

what can be done about this as this just aint sounding very fair to me should there not be some sort of change to this coz it kinda looks like the army is geting away with far to much

If you take food, rent etc out of your earnings as an ASDA trolley pusher and compare it to Army pay, your much better off with Army pay.

english please?

and how much were you expecting to get as a recruit? i think its probably more than fair the pay while doing basic training, you have nothing really to spend your money on while at basic, so when you come home for long weekends on leave then you will have a nice lump sum to spend in the pub :p ...

You don't join the army to make money, if you don't like it then don't join. If you just want money, do something else. Also yes it is a stupid question, thought about asking the AFCO or even just looking at the army website?
