Discuss Is a transfer possible? in Pay, Claims & JPA on The Army Rumour Service; Is it possible for a regular soldier (Armourer) to transfer to the TA?
Would they have to serve their minimum term first?
Thank you in advance for all replies....
So far as I am aware, you cannot transfer directly to the TA, but instead discharge completely, then join up again. The time frame between the two, time served, and the trade you transfer to, will dictate you keeping your rank, etc or not.
That is just as far as I know, by the way, not gospel- I was looking into it when I was going to get out a couple of years ago.
