    As imporant as yesterday was for the Defence Forces, the new officers and their families, the commissioning paled in comparison to what was underway in Leinster House.

    I don't think she had anything larger than 7.62. The USCG would have more likely had something with a bigger bang assuming it was a cutter than met her way out in the Atlantic. Surprised they didn't...

    So that leaves two potential scenarios.

    - S.3 was amended (possibly with a few iterations) around the time of FEMPI to reduce reserve pay in line with the then reduced PDF pay scales less 10% and...

    Ah but that's due to our own personal circumstances. We choose to do this and another job.

    Also, if you were a student, it could easily be just over 20%

    Of course we don't get paid more. The RDF never will and never should receive MSA. I will strongly disagree with anyone who suggests otherwise.

    A key question of which I'm sure we will never hear the answer here is - how difficult would it be to calculate and pay any back pay?

    - Is the system malleable enough that the increased pay...
