Howdy, my application to the regular Army has been deffered for nine months until may '07. This is due to something on my medical docs, i'm still waiting for the reason. If it's something I can't appeal against, a few people have suggested joining a TA regiment until I can reapply. Surely if i've been defferred on medical grounds, I cannot join the TA? Also, what kind of benefits would joining the TA give me when and if I started phase 1?
