    Vehicle : Vxr in red




    Default T A

    Now im very keen on joining the T A and did previously post about joining the royal logistic corps but having previous (limited ) experience with the marines fancy doing something similar. Im 28 so Dont want to go back to that, but do fancy something like the rifles. Anyone know anything about 7 rifles in London?Going for a visit but i know there's a few army dudes on here so just wondered if anyone had any advice on the rifles, good or bad?

    Was with 5rifles out in germany for four an a half years (were previously 1LI before the imalgamation) and its by far the best unit i have worked with. However actually joining them as a rifleman can be a bit turd. Lots of **** thrown your way plenty of duties and general dogs bodies job. if your a switched on lad you will go far but saying that i imagine TA would be different.

    Yeah i would love to go rmr cos that's where Im loyal to i guess but fancy something different and did fancy just something a little easier going. I know its still hard work but it takes two years to get through rmr now and i can't always commit to there requirements so bit of a non starter. Plus i know loads about em and wanted to do something slightly unknown if you get what Im saying. Did fancy op assistant with the hac but what a load of stuck up ***** they were lol. Definitely.itley into doing the up front bits rather then support. Have to see what the visit throws up. May just be right up my street.

    Ex-Royal Irish. Do it, I have a lot of respect for the TA, it will be a life changing experience.

    Being RLC will give you access to free driving courses, try to wangle a Police class one once you are in for a bit. Oh, you want to go to Cattrick if given the oppertunity!!

    Well i have an lgv licence already so Dont think i would gain much from the rlc to be honest. Think the ta play a bigger part then they used to thanks to afghan. Im 28 now so want to do something before its too late. I know you can join upto 43 but really, who wants to put themselves through that then lol. Think you go catterick anyway for all infantry now anyway. Done an emergency driving course aswell as a student paramedic so not many driving things left for me to do lol.
