§ Sir J. Grigg
The increase of pay in the Army takes effect from 1st October, 1942. Commanding officers have been instructed to make increased payments to soldiers accordingly on the first pay 1052 day after that date, namely, 2nd October. Children's allowances are paid weekly and the increases in these allowances will take effect in the first full week in October. It is not, however, possible to make them available earlier than 19th October when recipients will draw the additional payments for the two preceding weeks and for the week to come.
