joining the ta at 37

#1
hey
I am considering joining the ta's at 37, i have for many years been in a dead end job and am now sick of it.
I want to do something with real prospects excitement and pay, my only concern is that i was made bankrupt 2 years ago will this have a effect on me being able to join.

I am very fit and look after myself and can compete easily with 18-20 year olds on the football pitch and in ju jitsu, just need to keep this up and lose some more weight was 17.5 stone now 12.6, in under a year i really want this to work.

Any advice anyone can give in regards to the above and also how best to integrate myself to i am assuming a young group of trainees.

oh ye and my parents will dissown me if i join, i dont mean that as a joke regliouslly they are dead against this and will not speak to me again, which is part the reason i have left this so long.

Thanks for reading

For a start, post this in the Joining the TA Forum; this is for Regular recruiting. :roll:

This would have been better off in TA recruiting. Just go to the unit of your choice one Tuesday evening and get a medical there as early as possible. I got turned back for High Blood Pressure. Had no idea I even had it.

Best find that sort of stuff out first before you get so set on it it becomes a big disappointment that you can't get in for some reason.


For you edumacation, never use the terms "TAs" or "Terriers", nobody serving ever does.

TA is correct.

Good luck.
