    I think you'll find that most of the TA have a day job... that's what drill nights are for ;)

  6. One Army Recruiting - what a great success this is turning out to be... not!

    Somebody call?

    Recruit training consists of 9 weekends over approx 3 1/2 months followed by CIC and P Coy. Basic Para course at Brize to follow if you complete these. From day 1 to CIC and P Coy done in 4 months or so if all OK at first attempt.

    No such thing as compulsory mobilisation - it is all intelligent! That said, if you are not willing to get your boots sandy in the near future then look for a job at Tescos. You can chose from Iraq or Afghanistan, depending on what we are earmarked for and where the regular Bns are off to.

    You can chose to be a top flight airborne skygod infantry soldier, specialising in God's own art of Mortaring at Croydon . Or if you fail the course we might keep you on as a chef.
