The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. account closed
  2. Anyone alive out there?
  3. and your question is.................waht (emphasis on the wah ) exactly ? hmmmm ?
  4. Would I be taken into the TA whilst at school and is it reasonable to do so?
  5. Do you mean whilst at college ? Are you at college or at school ? Have you been in the ACF ?
  6. My 'learning establishment' is called (Town name) College, so whichever suits, I'm doing A-levels and it is 5 days a week until 3.30.
    Yes I'm currently in the ACF as a Cadet Cpl
  7. Best look up The Iron Duke on here - best placed to answer your questions...good luck with it...JD
  8. Could you elaborate on that a little bit?

    Edit: in particular the iron duke
  9. I was in the TA whilst at 6th Form although that was in 1986. I sacked my A-levels and went Regular shortly after TA basic training.

    The only problem you may have is commitment when revision time comes along.

    i did. As long as you are over 17 and a bit they will accept you.

    Adult head on now. Make sure you take priorities on board. I joined in my second year of a levels and instead of revising i got stuck properly into ta. Result was 3 failed a levels and 2 wasted years. In hindsight... Actually would prob do the same but take the point ok?
  11. Regular poster known as The Iron Duke - knows all about enlisting/applications so worth getting in touch.
  12. I'm doing so. Like you just finished first year of A-Levels and I've just completed my phase 1 training. Get a move on!
  13. Race ya to field marshall then old boy
