Hi there, I am seriously looking to join the TA soon and after looking at what's local-ish to me I spotted the Royal Yeomanry, namely A Squadron in Swindon. I am looking to hear from anybody who might be part of A squadron who could give me a good idea of what it is really like and not just what the website says. I'm an ex soldier myself so I know there is a difference between the careers office brochure and the reality of stagging on for hours in the rain. I know I could look at going there myself to see what it's like but I am quite busy for a few weeks and I don't want to waste anybody's time should I go there. I have heard good things about them from this site but a lot of the threads are fairly old and things could have changed rapidly in the last year or so but if it's still quite similar then it looks a good varied role with some very enthusiastic guys. Any help will be much appreciated, thanks.
