Joining Regs from TA

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. I passed my TA selection just over a month ago with the Royal Engineers and it's given me a good taster into army life. I'm basically wondering whether it's worth finishing my training with the TA before joining up, or going straight into the regs or marines ASAP.
    Pointers would be much appreciated :)

    There are loads of threads about this, so have a go with the search function and you will find all sorts of opinions.

    For my 2 pence, continue with your TA training while you apply for the regs. The application may take some time, and every bit of training while you wait is a bit more preparation for the regular course.

    Good luck.
  3. Thanks, that's the way I was thinking of going :)
