I have some questions regarding whether to go Regular or not. Several years ago I failed the RCB Briefing due to my eye sight. I had a Cat 1 but after seeing my prescription they failed me and sent a letter saying that I am unfit for military service. Since then I have passed both TCB Briefing and TCB (they knew there that I failed on the Regular selection due to my eye sight but did not seem bothered by it), then I commissioned from Sandhurst with a good report (grade B). Other thing I have achieved include two silver medals for Cambrian Patrol (including as the patrol commander), passing P Company and recently I had a good OJARs for the work I have been doing with the TA. What I am really posting to ask is where do I stand with regard to going regular. Will they turn me away again due to the problem with my eyesight, or do they recognise that I do have something to offer? If I want to go regular how do I appeal against the decision that had been made a few years ago? If I stay in the TA what will happen when I am deployed? Will they turn me away when I get to Chilwell, even though the Army has spent so long training me? Will they look at my previous military records or do they have no record (in the TA) of my dealings with the Regular Army? So do I take a pay cut and go Regular? Or stay in the TA with a good civi job and go on operations every few years (if they let me), but without the benefits of being in the Regular Army when I deploy? Thanks to anyone who may be able to help with this problem.
