Evening all I've made some preliminary enquiries about joining the TA but would like some advice on whether or not I'm deemed to old. I'll be 40 in a couple of months but exercise every day (cycling, run or weights, yoga). I'm also an experienced skydiver, part-time fireman, motorcyclist and still keep my hand in with the local shooting club. I served with the local cadets for 4 years but that was some time ago! I've spoken to the local TA office on the phone and I'm popping in for a chat tomorrow and the chap there thinks I'd be suitable for a transport role, as 'I'm knocking on a bit'. As you can see from my lifestyle I enjoy life to the full, keep fit and am wondering what other roles chaps of my age and background can expect to fulfil?
