Life post TA RSigs?

#1
Reckon a number of us will either be transferring or leaving.

Any shameless plugs or other ideas?

As a SNCO I reckon my chances of staying on is limited, maybe trying for 4 Yorks Sigs Pln is an option or something similar (I hold the right quals upto CSgt and maybe RSWO) but I'm not as young anymore after 10 years in Sigs.

I hope those who are finding their units being disbanded, will where possible consider the other Signals units in their area. Loss of unit identity is distressing, however you all still remain part of the Corp family and I know would be welcomed to other Squadrons. I appreciate that the future is somewhat uncertain, though I believe that should be resolved this week when LAND confirm the Bde's estimate and plan. Difficult times but the Corp and the TA has always weathered these changes so far and there is no reason (being optimistic!) that that should change in the future. :-D

Fortunately the TA is an even bigger family. Whichever unit you move to will make you welcome.

*shameless plug inbound*

PIDs available for the young and fit willing to retrain Inf and do P Coy and Para course.

PIDs also available for clerks, cooks and medics. P Coy and para course offered but not essential - trade skills are what count. Attached arms required to pass PFT and CFT (appropriate to arm) plus all other MATTs, so "enablers" need not apply.

A unit that is growing, real operational role, outstanding relationships with Regular counterparts, top flight PSIs etc, etc, etc.

*Plug ends*

If you don't mind travelling to York :) I'm fairly sure there's a slot or 2 and there's the added joy of a trip to BATUS this September for OPFOR. Any good with Bowman?

Try 600 Squadron RAuxAF. They have the only comms flight and most of the qualified ones are due back from OOA soon. RAF reserves seem to be going the opposite way to the TA, i.e. doubling their size

Polar, you can do a lot worse than an infantry sigs pl. I did, and I'm loving it :)

If UK TA Sigs are seen as a luxury that can be "sacrificed" right now...

Won't saving a few pennies now by down sizing units be a little short sighted?

I've been saying that it's the role / structure that is outdated, why is this not changing?

Answers on a postcard?

If you fancy doing something totally different, but with a really important role, and plenty of chances to deploy operationally, then why not consider the RNR Intelligence Branch? We're nationally based, and there is no requirement to do weekly drill nights.

All you need is to be a British citizen, and willing to undergo the DV process.

PM for further details.

Once in a lifetime opportunity!

If your unit is disbanding and you've been getting on well with your mates, why not ALL join 170 Infra Support Engineer Group?

Vacancies for approximately 2 entire RSigs squadrons.

Get in first while there are vacancies at all ranks - and some of you may find that you're doing your existing trade - or perhaps even use your civvy skills instead.

Well it's closer than my current TAC.

p.s. I don't know if my Sqn is going, just a 50-50 chance like the rest of the RSigs TA

I would suggest jumping ship before the damn thing sinks and drags you down with it!

Just in practical terms transfers take an age! With a foreseeable glut of disgruntled corps wallahs needing to do so it will probably cause Glasgow's systems to crash!

But then again don't expect anything special or secure in other units, its still the TA remember!

The important thing is to remain positive.

Thats half the bloomin problem! My LSN will not disappear but will probably move to another Sqn and Regt. I could gamble and move now but my Sqn could survive. I suppose it might be better to just wait it out - I'll have the best CV for the post as I'm already in it but I won't be one of their own (well not recently anyway).
