I am looking to join the ADF reserve in the RA Sigs. I have previous regular signals experance and I was advised to join the RA Sigs as my previous british service would be recognised. If I went for another cap badge then I may have to start from Pte again. Since then I have been told that Signals and Int are the 2 branches of the Australian Army that I may not be able to join as I am not a citizen. Aparently the rules changed last year and so no one really knows where I stand. My question really is - Can I join the RA Signals as a permanent resident and maybe keep my rank I earned in the UK, or will I have to re-badge to another corps/arm as I can't get a Secret security clearence?
