Right I am gonna be tottally blunt and honest here and am already typing this message from under cover. I am part of a forward observation team in a TA artillery battery. I have just seen the trawl for Telic 8 mobilisations. 1LI,1 PWRR and the QRH are all requesting E2 (any capbadge if im not mistaken) riflemen. My dilmemma is this, I am currently in the process of joining up to HM forces full time and I have a selection weekend in March, I could postpone my application I'm sure, but I'm not really one for mucking people around like that really. But I have also always said I'd like to do a tour before leaving the TA, I owe the mob a lot for all the things its done for me. I don't really know why I want to do a tour, just feel as if I do. The thought of actually going to Iraq is quite a scary one to me. Would just appreciate some advice on this please fellas, I had pretty much got it into my head that after Op Herrick in April fell through I wouldn't be doing a tour but now this comes up.
