"This is the TA..." Is it? Passing off in No2 dress? Parachuting? White water rafting? Bags of excitement? Really? Well, in my 13 years+ I can't say I've seen much of the above... parachuting perhaps but only on much the same basis as you could organise it yourself. I appreciate the marketing types like to make it all exciting but I don't know why they bother... perhaps the hope is to get them in, trained and mobilised before they can say "But where's my uniform, like on the adverts... and when are we going rafting?"
