Short answer....no

As far as I know, because you are not staying in barracks you should not have rations deducted from your pay. As for claiming you're out of luck, you will be told as always "that's what you're gratuity is for". Of course you could try organising alternative transport with your cadre staff.

Rations should not be deducted anyway when attending a course or annual training (yet another achievement by RDFRA). If rations are not provided you can claim on a 360.

Not being a member of RDFRA I was not aware of this. I stand corrected, thanks for the info Bravo20

PDFORRA got the removal of ration charges for single people who are on courses removed on the back of that achievement.

there is only one reserve person per sub-unit (company) allowed to claim travailling expenses, this is normally the C/O.

Only covers the two people I pointed out above
