What with the cut backs, downsizing, money saving (whatever you want to call it) exercise currently under way in the TA, with the aim of trimming off the dead wood, hangers on and bounty hunters, the TA is looking to mobilise more of its troops on Ops. The question is would you consider going on tour to do a job you wouldnât usually do in your normal TA career? Such as a chef going out as a driver escort for the EOD? Sigs going to stag on at Bastion? Or REME going out to stack blankets? The OCE has jobs that clearly no one else wants to do and not trade-related but who would consider a tour that isnât anything to do with previous trade training? Thereâs a buzz around my Unit and thereâs a big interest in soldiers wanting to go on tour. I was talking with some of them and was surprised that they didnât care what they did, they just wanted to get out there?
