Hello, I'm ex-TA infantry who left shortly after a Herrick tour in 2010. I've been struggling for freelance work of late (only making around 250 a week after long hours). So I could really do with re-enlisting and going of for another tour of Helmandshire. Who would be my best bet to get away on a tour with quickly, I've rang one of the steelbacks PSIs and they've told me their blokes have already left, anyone know which regiment I'd be best off joining as I'm preparred to travel. There's also this DIE stuff I've been reading about which came in after I'd left, how does that work? Will that mean that I have to spend a year of weekends before getting to deploy again? (not whinging, just want to know what I'm in for) I've also heard 4 para do a "gap year" with a regular battalion, I'd be interested to know if I'm ellligible for that (31 yrs old and not a student).
