First, background. Joined TA some years back, did three years. Third year was with an OTC unit, and thats the point I drifted away. Never quite managed to feel even remotely atached to the unit. I didn't really enjoy it, the half hearted attitude, the obsession with socialising. So I let my enlistment lapse, moved away. Eventualy returned my gear, before sodding off to a place very, very far away. Am now 25, thinking of returning to the uk. Should I rejoin? I suspect that my eyesight is now below the required standards. But I still wear the same glasses as I did, 7 years ago. I suspect I was too blind to begin with! Fitness wise, I could run my old self into the ground. Is it the same organisation? Would there be issues with me having left once? And the way I did? Would I need to go through all the same basic training? (sorry, I'll rephrase - would I have those fun fun weekends repeated?) Would I remain an Officer Cadet or go back to Private? Is there a choice? Sure there's something else I should ask.... Oh yes, any other advice?
