  1. Hi all, Im seriously considering joing the TA. Im just worried im to old/? haha Im 32 an accountant from Liverpool and always wanted to join the army but having 2 kids kinda put a stop to that!! I have registered my info with the army website for the TA but would you say im too old, whats would i be able to do? Are there any TA members that can talk me through it? . Thanks xx
  2. You're not too old. Search the TA forums here and all the info you need can be found. The Army website will also give you a guide to what units are available to you.

  7. Iv got my selection dates for Lichfield, I'm re-joining, I am fit and 32 years young! Unless your an old, unsociable, miserable 32 year old you'll enjoy the craic. After all your only 32 not 92! Most guys in the TA units are well into their 30's and will have a lot of respect for you. You'll progress much quicker Aswell, sometimes the age will be a massive bonus. Good luck mate
