Hey all, just wondering

#1
As a mockney living in newcastle, im wandering off to my local TA tonight to go and have a sniff about it, just wondering what sort of thing and what stich ups to expect?
 
#2
Shouldn't be any stitch-ups on the first night - the TA needs all the recruits it can get...

Unless you fall for the old "You'll get your pay as soon as you get your army number" line...

msr

Another thing is going into it relativley unfit, that a problem or is that being sorted out along the line?

Or is everyone a fat old turd in the TA?

Ah.... the joys of first joining. Have they told you about the ritual dance you have to do on Attestation and where the Badge puts his stick if you're naughty?
