i was born in the UK, but never bothered to apply for a british citizenship until last year (i was registed as an aussie with the embassy). i'm currently a serving memeber in the aussie reserves, but am getting jack of having been in for 4 years and not seeing anything close to a deployment. i have played with the idea of coming to the UK for 2 years and joining the TA (an infantry unit of course) in an attempt at getting on a deployment. i wouldn't join the regs as im due to graduate uni this year and am looking at some pretty good civilian careers with my degree. am i even allowed to join the TA since i only lived in the UK for 5 years? what are deployment prospects like for the TA? will i be able to discharge and bugger off back to aussie after 2 years? sorry fellas, but i like sun, beaches, cold beer, and a country without gypsies (on my last trip to the UK i got rolled by a gypsie in cambridge), england is not my favorite place. i've heard stories from other mates of mine who've gone over to do something similar but its always better to get it from the horses mouth so to say. i might draw a bit of fire for this, and its understandable, so i apoligize in advance if i offend anyone.
