Could I get some advice here please? The situation is I am going away travelling at the end of the year (absolutely nothing to do with the cricket ), I have done my phase one (inf) but am yet to complete my phase two. So I was monging out on Sat p.m. when I got a call from a friend of a friend who is a reg (officer), also ex TA. he said: "Leave now, else you're going to get pinged for Telic 9 and that'll f**k up your plans" I said "Whoah but I haven't finished my phase two thought I couldn't be deployed until I have done so, and everything I have heard through my unit has been that one volunteers for a tour, and you don't get pinged out of the blue" Him: "You never know and as you have done phase one you are a trained soldier, just not trade trained." Sorry I know this is similar to the mobilisation topic but: 1: Can you get pinged out of the blue for Telic? 2: Even if you have only done basic (inf) training? Or is my regular friend just a bit barking? Cheers!
