OK - Right so I walked into the local ACIO in Feb 07 to join the regs, passed selection in May for the RMP and recieved my number, got given 21 Jan as my start date for ATR Winchester. Appendix burst in Oct 07 and was advised that starting CMS(R) 3 months later was a bad idea (doc was ex-Army so knew the score) Now, my life's changed a lot in the (almost) year since I applied to the regs, I'm back in a great job and loving it, love the people, got some great friends, and my partner of 2.5 years are now back together and making a real go of it. I don't really feel I'm at the same place in my life I was a year ago, and that I can no longer commit to the regs. However, I come from an Army family and I absolutely want to do the Army still. So, how would I go about joining the TA instead? Does it matter/affect that I passed regs selection? Do I need to do selection again? At ADSC or at local TA unit? The issues that are sending me Ta-ward in terms of my relationship are the moving anywhere in the UK/Germany/lots of time away from home/never getting to see TOH - are these issues that I'm still going to face in the TA? I confess to knowing nothing about the TA due to only looking at the regs for a career. Any help is greatly appreciated.
