Says it all in the title really. I understand that most extra pay is for retention (bdo's/atos, paras,divers) but with having to form a new search regiment, is it not the case that searchers will have to be retained too? I don't know any searcher who is willing to come back out here on a second tour, and with the current operations I'd see more point in given out search pay than say... Jumps pay! With little appreciation and no outcome, what would be the incentive for sappers to go on the course? Particulerly when you work with an ATO who gets a £50K bonus and £15 quid a day doing a job euqally, if not less high threat - at times.
