Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Im currently looking at joining the TA and these roles stand out :-
    royal artillery,AS90,Rapier,HVM Is it possible to join these as a T,A also
    royal engineers,building materials tech,carpenter joiner,ground crew any info on this would help .
    royal logistic corps/ logistic support driver,specialist driver .
    i have an interest in these jobs and an honest opinion on these would guide me in the right direction like :-where the regiments are base and operations engagement rules how hard the training is and generall T,A Requirements.
  2. Post it in a few more forums just in case. 3 isn't enough.

  3. I think the TA RA still have rapier, could be wrong.

    You job role tends to depend on the unit you join, what area are you looking at, location wise?
  4. I think the Gunners use HVM, they are in Southampton and London. If I were joining the TA new and there were sappers near me thats what I would join (personal choice).

  5. north west but will travel to the right destination for the perfect role.
    I have posted this a few times now sorry for the progressive posting but i have gave myself three choices to narrow down to one the perfect role for embarking on a serious job.
  6. Do you have ex reg experience ?
  7. You'd travel half way across Britain for a TA unit?

    Perhaps you should focus on your main career first, and base your location on that?
  8. i do have ex reg exp-i passed out as an infantryman,but it was the wrong role i mean i was an average jo not the best but deffo not the worst always finished in the front on tabs average running times on the 1.5 miler good shot etc mint kit prep-pritty popular guy in the platoon i just felt i was in the wrong job,
  9. Well at least you never went AWOL
