I was a Regular NCO (PWRR) for 12 years. After 5 years as a civvie I'm seriously thinking of dipping my toe with the T.A. Question: How are ex-regulars thought of? - Arrogant, narrow-minded with no concept of the volunteer ethos or a welcome addition that brings more experience into the unit. I'm going along to a few 'open drill' nights soon. I'd like a bit of a heads'up.
