I took my eldest and two of his friends to the the titular TA unit today. They seemed keen and eager to talk to them - the net result is they are filling in the paperwork to join. I have no idea if the lads apparent enthusiasm is genuine but it seems so. The upshot of which is that 7 Rifles may well have three extra, keen bods on strength within the next year as trained up soldiers. I'm taking a bit of a back seat now. They may well take a look at the TA Yeomanry which was where they first went, they may not. It's up to them. I'd certainly have a look around before deciding but these are teenagers who tend to jump in feet first (didn't we all?). I would just like to voice my thanks to the team at Swindon for doing their job, with enthusiasm. Just wish I was on commision!
