Hey, I transferred to the TA in March 2009 after having been in a UOTC since September 2004. I passed my MOD 2 in December 2005, thus making me a trained soldier. I've just completed my MATTs for this training year. My issue is that I am being told I only qualify for a first year TA bounty even though I have been in the TA since 2004 and a trained soldier since 2006. Although I do realise that I wasn't Group A, I did put in a lot of work and took part in several TA and Regular exercises during that time. One argument being sent my way is that I couldn't be mobilised as a Group B soldier, but even as a Group A I cannot be as I am currently in full time education. If anyone has any clue as to what constitutes being in the TA and if I do indeed only qualify for a first year bounty, I would be very grateful. Yours aye.
