Hi, I'm a recruit in the TA and have been in now for 18 months. The only training I have done is TAFS 1 and TAFS 2 (twice). As you can probably imagine I am getting very bored and frustrated as I am a regular turnout to Tuesday night training and am wondering how many more NBC lessons I can actually stand. I also have to put up with constant nagging/bitching from the recruiting staff and officers in my unit as to why I have not attended my 2wk ATR - the reason being both fitness and family related. I am strongly considering leaving and coming back when I have "sorted my f**king life out", to quote my drill instructor, but do not know where I really stand on this. 1. If I leave, do I have to wait a certain amount of time before I can reapply? 2. I understand that I will have to restart the training programme - but will I get my old number back and will they have kept my records at all? 3. Realistically, what is the likleyhood of me being looked down upon/treated differently or even accepted if i were to come back and rejoin later in the year?
