A TA soldier is only paid when active, no holiday pay, no pension, no accommodation costs, no travel costs. A TA soldier is usually better educated than a Regular A TA soldier has to meet the same fitness standards A TA soldier is more diverse they are recruited locally. The TA has served this country for over 100 years It has and can form the basis of any fast expansion should the need arrive. To my Regular Friends - Who think I don't care about them - I do but: We're fighting a rear guard action now and sorry to say there has been lots of talk over the years about One Army but little fact on the ground!
