Hi there, I'm fairly newish to the TA and I'm looking for advice. I have done 3 of the 6 basic training weekends and I'm finding it tough - the skill at arms especially. I have practically no support from my unit and despite many requests to have additional skill at arms training, there always seems to be one reason or other that it doesn't happen. Since passing selection in June, we have done exactly 3 lessons on drill nights - intro to map reading, bcd and one PT class which consisted of 20 minutes dull circuits. I'll be honest, I'm wondering if the TA is for me. I find it hard to be enthusiastic and am finding that I am actually dreading weekends 4-6 and the 2 weeks CMSR. Has anyone else felt like this? Any advice would be appreciated.
