I got an Admin discharge from the REME just over 5 years ago, at the age of 19, having served just over 2 years. Cause of leaving is listed in the red book as "retention undesirable in the interest of the service" Military conduct is listed as "very good". Despite it being a long time now, I have kept in close contact with a number of my colleagues from my time served, and on occasion do miss serving, especially these days in the current Iraq/Afgan climate where I do feel a desire to "be there with" guys I have known for 7 years+ I feel I have matured significantly in the 5 years since my departure from the service, and have recently considered attempting to join the TA. I know nobody can give me an exact answer, partly because I'm deliberately trying to be a little vague, but is there any point in me applying to the TA? Will the fact that I was discharged from the regulars immediately disqualify me? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me, even if it is "**** off and stay a civvie"
