One of my perversions is that I occasionally like to pretend I am a total newbie to the TA world and then see how accessible/interesting/appealing the info available about the TA is. That's how I came to the view that the www.ta.mod.uk site is appalling in that it doesn't directly give any information about individual units without requiring punters to hand over their details first: very intrusive if all you're doing is browsing for info. It takes a bit of technical skill to find the websites of those TA units switched-on enough to have their own site - and even that requires divulging your home postcode to the Man. Grr. Worse still is the RFCA London website, which I have just had the misfortune of looking at. The TA page within it has a slideshow of the most ridiculous, unrepresentative and unappealing pictures. Staggering. Although they do make wearing a Santa bobble hat when in C95 look like fun. Internet-wallahs, please fix.
