Hey, So I've got a bit off a problem with the TA and I'm not getting any answers and it's been months now since I decided to join the TA and in serious need of answers. So let me start, months ago I decided to join my local TA regiment in Northern Ireland as a driver (152 Transport Regiment) I did my interviews, medical and selection with no problems, but then it all started to go downhill from here and still haven't started training after months of passing selection. They said it's due to paper work being held up in Scotland or something on those lines, this is due to me previously joining the regular army at sixteen and droping out a few weeks laters (Big mistake) I just felt I wasn't mentally ready for it, but since then I've did a bit of growing up, I'm now 20 and looking to give the TA ago, but I feel I'm just being messed about and being told excuse after excuse. I recently phoned them again about a month ago and got told the same excuse (paper work) then got told my medical has expired and will have to do it again!!! not just that, I was also told I could no longer be a driver due to me not having a car licenses, this wasn't the case when I was joining up. Now I have the option to be a chef or a medic, this is what the guy over the phone told me and this just does not appeal to me at all. So I was thinking would I be able to get a transfer to another regiment? I was thinking the 2nd battalion Royal Irish, would this be possible? Because I don't fancy being a chef or a medic at all but more to the point, what the hell is going on with this paper work and why after months of passing selection haven't I started training what is the deal here?
