Advice required please. I am looking at possibly joining the above unit as a soldier next year as I moving roles within my civilian role and can commit to the TA from January 08. I am 38 ex Royal Navy (writer) but been out for 13 yrs. Have a v good career but would like to into the TA. The unit seems to be well ran and it has a good name locally. I am healthy and well within the fitness standards. I am not hung up on trade pay. Just wondered if there is a lot of extra training to be a Driver Rad Op as opposed to a Driver ? Or do you join the TA as a Driver then qualify as Rad Op if you want to get the qualification ? Any advice either from Norn Iron or any other mainland TA units would be appreciated. Cheers in advance.
