Whether you know it or not, things are changing for TA Service. New arrangements effective from 1 April 2007 are: New upper age limit for recruits of 43. New engagements for 12 years initially (you can still bin it whenever you like unless on Ops) Normal Retirement Age of 55 (Officer can go to 60) This is to bring the TA onto Common Terms of Service (TOS) with the Regular Army who are moving onto the versatile engagement in 2008. Existing members can opt to change to the 12 year engagement at their next re-engagement point or can sign up for it straight away Individuals will be looked at coming upto the 12 year point and see if they are worthy of an extension of a further 12 years. Overage engagements over 55 for a year at a time will still be available. The details were published in a DIN earlier this month. What do you think? GOOD or BAD?
