  1. I left 124 rec Coy back in may 2008 due to alot of commitments elsewhere.Now im ready to join back up with them.

    How long can you be out before you have to retake all your recruit training.
  2. I'm staggered - I didn't realise the TA did any recruit training...

  3. yes i believe when i joined it was called a recruit carder.or cmsr or summat daft like that it was many many many years ago
  4. Check with the unit. I think it's 2 or 3 years.
  5. i deployed on many occasions within my 12 years t.a service
  6. Further to previous threads on this subject, if you are worth it & your unit is up to it there are ways & means. Talk to them.
  7. Was that Herrick ?
  8. To the OP the answer you are looking for is 6 years, provided you were in for 12 months and passed phase 1. If you were an NCO you must rejoin in 3 years if you want to retain your rank.
