This post by Alpha Five in the save Chibber thread made me think:
What percentage of TA bods are ex Regs, or how many intend to join the Regs after a spell in the TA? Or how many Regs would consider joining the TA?
No, TA is not serving. I'm getting the impression you all have chips on your shoulders. Don't feel bad for not having being a regular soldier. Some's got it, some don't.
