Hi, Could anyone point me in the right direction. I've been to my local TA for a meet and greet. Filled in some forms and now I'm awaiting a letter to say when i have to go for my fitness and medical tests. When i went to my local TA there seemed to be two groups of people (my sincere apologies for my lack of military terminology knowledge) both the REME guys and the East of Anglian Infantry. I was told that i will have to decide which one i would like to join and what job role i would prefer. After reading through some threads on this forum a lot of people recommend that you should choose a group before your job role. Could anyone tell me the benefits of the Infantry? REME seems to be based around engineering and i don't think i would be suited for that. Also i have looked at the jobs available and i definitely want it to be under the combat section . But the job role i would like doesn't come under the TA, does anyone know of a similar job role to the "GUNNER SPECIAL OBSERVER" in the TA (i think also you have to have 4 years in the army under your belt for that job)? I know that this job comes under the Royal Artillery does this mean that my local TA won't be able to provide this? Sorry about all the questions. Any help appreciated.
