Hello, I have tried using Google and searching within the forum but I wanted some more answers from people's own personal experience. I'm more a lurker on here so I'd probably sound like an idiot but anyway: I am interested in joining this unit B(220) near Ditton as a CMT but I want to know what it's like in there. I'm almost 16 and I want to see if I can get into some other TA units do basic training and then get transferred to the B220 when I'm 17 (or whatever their minimum age limit is.. I'll check this with the unit). Is anyone here in that unit? Has anyone worked with them? Are they are friendly bunch? What happens in a typical drill night? Also, more of a general question but what exactly do CMTs in the TA do when deployed (I'm asking for someone's actual experience here)? Once you've done a course and you've decided that you don't have time for the TA, can you still leave (studies/ moving to a different area)? I know you can "leave at any time" but I'm not sure if this is still the case after you've done a course. Also using the search function I came across a post saying that there's something called a CMA (Combat medic assistant?). Is this the same as the CMT (only that I'm supervised with someone who's fully qualified)? Thanks in advance.
