  1. Hi guys

    Wondering if anyone had any advice about joining the Regs from the T.A?
    Am a LCpl with 4 years experiance of which comprises a tour in Afghan and a year mobilised to a regular Regiment. I have various quals and many of them are regular courses as well as a few T.A ones.
    As far as I can find out the only way in is to shed all previous knowledge experiance etc and go through the whole recruit process, possibly losing all my Quals along the way!
    Thanks in advance!
  2. Had a full screw in my last unit who went reg different arm but lost his rank etc and had to do basic isn't FTRS not an option for you?
  3. You'll loose your rank but your experience should get that back quickly and maybe a bit more. Take the hit.
