I did get initial call-up papers about 3 months after I signed off during the build-up to GW1. They (M&RO Kentigern House) wanted to know what trade I was. My already damaged faith in the record keeping of the Army was dented even further. As it turned out, they had enough combat typists and I never heard from them again.

Reservist my arse, more like Reversist, first thing I did when I left was sign foreign articles and get off to sea.Everyone deserves a second chance, except those who try to shaft me and fail.
We are the Pilgrims, Master, we shall go always a little further,
It may be beyond the Blue mountain barred with snow,
Across that Angry or Glittering Sea.

[QUOTE=Grey_Mafia65;4412946]That's what I was told, or until I had children
Well in that case, I'd have only been a reservist for a couple of days. The dirty little sluts.

I'm fairly sure that once you complete 12 years regular military service, you have no reservist liability; they can't call you up. That's what I was told anyways.

[QUOTE=ordinaryforces;4412874]Don't know if it helps ...but a long time ago when I left I was put on the short-term reserves for 6 years and the long-term for 12 years and [B]was given a pile of reporting documents to use if called which contained travel warrants. (still got em ...you never know?) [/B] probably all changed now?[/QUOTE]
Same here Mukker! Still got me sausage bag full of kit and all the docs stashed in the attic.
Been there almost 30 years now and I can't remember the last time I looked at them :)

They can bugger off if they think they are getting any more time out of me.
I haven't decided what sort of leave I'm on this week. Choices, choices.......
