Discharge from the TA

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was discharged from the TA in the 90's for a criminal conviction for a fight I was involved in outside the TA. Can I now rejoin the TA because the conviction is SPENT under the rehabilatation of offenders?
  2. You should be able to rejoin the TA now, subject to the usual requirements of age, health and suchlike.

    I would tell the recruiting staff at the outset why you left last time. You don't have to, but it's better to make a clean breast of these things than them find out later somehow.

    Fighting, although regrettable, wouldn't worry me as much as, say, theft.

    Whereabouts in the UK (generally) are you?

    edit: Some units, such as the RMP, Medics and so forth, have a different set of rules as far as I recall. Shouldn't be a problem for most combat or combat support units though.
  3. I've just rejoined and they made a point of asking me why I left previously
  4. I am from Derby.
  5. which unit are you looking at? I may be able to get an answer from the horses mouth
  6. Fluffy Bunny I have pm you but the message is not going out my Outbox.
