Having left the regs and joining up with the local T.A. centre I am quite alarmed at the amount of people who "float in and float out" the amount of people who actually stay for longer than 6-9 months is not many and more than 3 years even less. If the T.A can take its annual training (and monotony)to germany every other year, then perhaps it can take it to cyprus every other? surely with all the cutbacks the regs are having there is a few quid to spare? A lot of T.A. soldiers join through friends that are in, more travel would be a good way of attracting fresh blood. anyone else have any bright ideas?
