It's heard of that people who've been mobilised are sometimes being offered a place with the unit they served with and being able to skip various bits of the training-I guess it depends how much experience you've got, bloke I know that has had the offer had been in TA inf and RA for years, done CIC and was out playing in Afghanistan.. I'm not sure how it works, you could end up on a kind of permenant FTRS engagement.
     
  7. yes but hearing that the maximum ftrs stint is 48 months,would then have to return to civvy street or get another ftrs with a completely different unit
