Cardiff TA Units.

#1
After spending the first year of uni getting fat and unfit i've decided to do something about it. I'm either going to join the OTC or TA come september.
I was wondering whether anyone here has had experiences of good or bad TA units in Cardiff. The Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia) apparently has a unit in Cardiff, which appeals to me. Has anyone got any experience of this unit?
Also what exactly does the TA do on a weekend away?
Is it staying in barracks doing fitness and military skills or more putting the skills you know into practise in the field.
Cheers

The Rmon RE(M) at Cardiff is an outlying troop - two troop at Llandaff North. SHQ is at Cwmbran TAC 01633 838006.

They mostly train in Engineering skills. Best thing is to phone SHQ on the above number and if possible pop into Cardiff TAC on a Weds night. Good bunch of blokes when I knew them, though a few have left now. Good bar :)

53 Signal Squadron sounds pretty good I reckon.

Nah!! Sat in a landrover or tent talking to someone miles away. :evil:

Join the Mons. Weekends in Weymouth :D

Best thing to do is call into both TAC's and see how they sell it you. Then you can make your own mind up.

May have been like that in your day when you joined, but if you watched the news you would see that the TA are in Iraq and Afghanistan, and last week 3 TA were Killed. I don't think they had a BMI of 134 or above. Maybe you would like to add that to the condolences for their family

4 Died last week actually, 3 SAS and 1 TA para.

I suppose it's too much to ask for tedious cnuts to have a little class and give the piss taking a short break.
