Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just a question. :)

    When a TA Unit mobilise's, Ive heard you say you get attached to regulars. Do you get attached alone or with your TA squaddies?

    Please excuse my lack of experience. :( I am fairly new.
  2. If you are asking this question, you will not be mobilising for a loooooong time.

    So don't worry about it.
  3. By and large, they deploy the TA into areas where the regulars are already established. They did deploy 49 Para into Libya to sort the situation in the mid 80's, but that's hush hush.

    Depends on your units role, your skills, where you are mobilised and in what capacity. For instance, if you deploy as a class 3 Signaller to Helmand province when a trawl appears on the notice board you'll probably not see any of your TA mates until you return. But you may deploy as a member of an infantry company to Bagdad, and be surrounded by people you know.

    Plus if you have a required skill i.e. if you happen to speak Dutch, Farsi, Polish, Korean, Arabic etc, your skills set you apart and will put you in a specialised post.
  4. Thank you Milk :) Much help.
