Rejoining & possible tours

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by speedybham, Dec 20, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm in the process of rejoining TA, as a specialist, was previously VE. I understand this role is now part of VM's.

    Everything is further complicated by the possibility of moving jobs. I'm rejoining with my eyes open and have no objection to goin on tour.

    Whats the chances of being depolyed within the first year or two?

  3. VE still exist in the TA so you should be able to rejoin in your old trade. For quite a while now all tours for the TA have required volunteers only so the only pressure for you to volunteer is local (from your unit hierarchy) or professional (why join the army if doing tours isn't for you).

    Hope your new employers are sympathetic to you being in the TA, if not there are lots of wise people around who can steer you towards help if needed.
  4. Thanks for your replys,

    i would like to go on tour given the opportunity, im trying to get an idea of what my options could be within the next 12 months
