Looking at joining the TA and wanted to find out some more information on the armourer positions, seems to be abit of conflicting information about what requirements are needed to join. Do you have to have previous been an armourer in the Reg's or can you be trained up? I understand the need for Eng. experience and Maths requirements but think i've got both those covered, currently studying part time at a BSc in Mathematics, have experience of Toolmaking/Fitter roles and Blacksmithing, and looking to tack on a FdEng in Railway Engineering(read Mech. Engineering) over the next two years. And if its possible what units should I be looking at, noticed the Coventry Units but its a f'ing long drive for a weeknight. Was hoping for something more East Midlands based or a National Unit.
