ARAB 2 STAB - Which Unit?

As an ex Int Corps JNCO who still has a hankering to wear DPM and swear a lot as my rifle jams for the umpteenth time, I'm looking at joining the TA.

3MI Coy is, of course, the natural choice, but I was also wondering what other units close to my locale (North Wilts) could offer me in terms of:

a) using my existing skill sets and,

b) adding new ones and giving me a fresh take on the Army?

Obviously I will carry out my own research into local units; and I accept that people on here will be biased, but every scrap of info helps build the bigger picture!

Does it have to be an INT unit or are you open to ideas?
Certainly open to ideas. I like the idea of using my previously gained skills in a new context - plus I'd probably be less likely to slide into 'big-timing' it as an ex-reg, (and thereby putting peoples backs up,) if I'm having to learn new ways of doing things same as everyone else! :wink:

Augustus - read and digested. Cheers.

You could always join an MI unit and then be an RTC instructor.

Infact, why not start a thread about it...


Being Wilts, you may find that a 5MI det is closer.
Cheers blindking.
If you want to remain close to your neck of the woods you have:

1. 54 MI Coy in Keynsham
2. 395 Air Despatch Tp in Lyneham
3. A Sqn Royal Yeomanry
4. B Sqn RWxY in Salisbury
5. 81 Signal Sqn in Corsham

For more info PM me or look at www.armyjobs.mod.uk/southwest under TA
