Hi, just hoping for some words of wisdom from the guys who know what they're on about. I'm planning to join my local TA infantry unit as an Officer cadet in order to commence my training there. I'm done as much research and talking to guys as I can, and I've been told everything there is to be told about joining, selection, and the job of an officer etc. However I'm still rather confused as to exactly what you do as n O/Cdt for the year and half or so you are one... What do they do on an average drill night? Since O/Cdt isn't a rank as such, what is their actual rank? What do they do on weekends? etc etc... Anyone been through it or involved in, if you'd like to inform me of as much as you can be bothered to type, it'd be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Hutchi.
