Found this on the RNR forum at Rumration: http://www.rumration.co.uk/cpgn2/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=542#6220 Basically: Apparently we're soon to be able to volunteer for mobilisation for periods specified by us ourselves. Anything upwards of a month will become acceptable. All you have to do is make it known that you're available and when and you'll be put on the list. When your speciality/experience matches up with a job somewhere you'll get the call. This apparently starts in June. In our unit they are putting together a list or volunteers for this very thing. We are told that we would be covered by the Reserve Forces Act the same as if we were called up. Now, granted this is the Navy and they have a different outlook on their reservists, ie they are recruited as IRs, but has anyone heard anything like this for the TA?
