Has there been any amplification of the applicable QR&O/CFAO more recent than 7210-83(DCBA 3-4) dated 31 Aug 01, of which the gist was:

"A MEAL AT CROWN EXPENSE IS NOT REQUIRED WHEN A MBR WORKS A NORMAL SHIFT AND IS GIVEN PERS TIME OFF TO CONSUME A MEAL"

"3. EFFECTIVE 1 SEP 01 MBRS ON CLASS A/B RESERVE SERVICE WHO PARADE OVER A MEAL HOUR ARE NO LONGER AUTOMATICALLY ENTITLED TO A MEAL EXPENSE. NEVERTHELESS, THIS DOES NOT PRECLUDE A CO FROM DETERMINING THAT, IN ORDER FOR UNIT RESERVE MBRS TO PARTICIPATE IN AN AUTHORIZED TRAINING SESSION OR EXERCISE OVER A MEAL HOUR, THE MEAL ALLOWANCE IS AUTHORIZED."

The current CFAO online is dated even before the one you have.  But considering it is still online, I will take that to mean it is still valid:

CFAO 210-35 -- MEAL EXPENSE -RESERVE FORCE MEMBERS ON CLASS "A" OR CLASS "B" RESERVE SERVICE, CIVILIAN CADET INSTRUCTORS AND CADETS
PURPOSE

1.    This order amplifies  QR&O 210.83 and QR (Cadets) 7.11.

GENERAL

2.    When a member of the Reserve Force on Class "A" or Class "B" Reserve
Service, a civilian cadet instructor, or a Cadet of the Sea, Army or Air
Cadets is required to attend a parade or exercise over a meal hour, and the
issue of rations in kind is not practical, he shall be paid Meal Expense at
the rate prescribed in  QR&O 210.83.

ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES AND SETTLEMENT OF CLAIMS

3.    At the conclusion of the parade or exercise the commanding officer
shall:

    a.  prepare form CF 52, General Allowance Claim, in triplicate,
          showing -

          (1)  name and location of the unit,

I think it's great when navymich gets the overnight duty shift - - it gives her time to go through CFAOs for us.
Maybe she should do more duties   >:D

This QR&O has been replaced by Compensation and Benefit Instruction (CBI) 210.83, which reads:

210.83 - MEAL EXPENSE - RESERVE FORCE ON CLASS "A" RESERVE SERVICE OR CLASS "B" RESERVE SERVICE

(a) a meal expense without receipt equivalent to the national average cost of a dispersed lunch meal produced by a Canadian Forces dining facility for visiting units and personnel as determined annually by the Chief of the Defence Staff, or
(b) a meal expense supported by a receipt not to exceed the meal allowance rate for a lunch established by the Treasury Board for the public service.
(2) (Payment of expense) The expense described in paragraph (1) is payable in the manner established by the Chief of the Defence Staff.

I figured there had to be something more recent than 2001.  Thanks Haggis.  I've found the text on DCBA's portion of the public D-Net.
