A few basics

#1
I have had a good look around the site but haven´t found an explicit answer to these questions:
1) If you resign after serving say 5 years of your TA contract, are you kept in the Reserves like the Regulars until the end of your 12 year contract?
2) As a DETAPO after commissioning if your desired regiment/s have no need for some whipper snappers do you get cajouled into a regiment with needs?

To be sure:
3) If you volunteer for a tour under "intelligent mob." does the same civy job-protection legislation apply as was the case in the forced mobilisation Iraq 2003 apply?

1) No

2) I would be very surprised if there was one regiment which is turning YOs away. Best to check with the regiment you wish to join before this happens. You may face some pressure to join a different unit, but stand firm if you don't want to go there.

3) Yes, the legislation applies, but if your employer finds out that you have volunteered and have not been completely honest with them, it may be your position which gets 'right-sized'.
