Re: Need to know

Greetings Old Comrades!

Cannot add anything definite, but my close friend of the Blue persuasion - a mine of information - tells me that his paybook had a blue cover (natch!) and was in two parts as Jim describes. Also, he agrees with my own recollection that he kept his paybook himself at all times. He claims the RAF also issued I/D cards, small size not unlike a credit card.

I do recall that the only occasion where pay entries were made in Part 2 was when attending a 'Casual Pay Parade', if on detachment, for instance. Another memory just came flooding back was that jabs, etc., were entered in Part 1 which also included a 'Last Will' form.....

Have you filled YOURS in yet?
