I am thinking of joining the TA as an officer. I enroled in the potential army officer course at 16 and applied to welbeck academy but family issues stopped me in my tracks. I am now 26 and have never lost the dream of enroling but financially i am able to go in the regular army. So i would like to serve in the TA but want to know more about the specific time commitments this may entail. I am aware that the minimum requirement is one night every week and one weekend a month plus the 2 week training camp each year. Are all of these complusary? Any guidance would be appreciated.
