Anyone in the R.L.C - T.A as a seaman or marine engineer, if so what are these trades like? My application is being processed and seems to be taking an eternity, is this the norm?What is involved in the trade training what adventure training happens? how often should i expect to be compulsory mobilized? How long will i have to spend away on such a tour? any opinions appreciated. cheers.. p.s im a newbie. Also has any one heard of this being a trade avalible to the T.A. i posted the first paragraph on the T.A forum and people seemed un aware of this being a trade.
