Looking for some clarification here; a friend and I left the Army nearly two years ago in similar circumstances and are looking to join the TA. He wants to join his local Battalion, having completed a tour (H10) as an OP Ack in the Arty (ended up doing the job of a MFC) like myself. Will he still have to do the Phase Two equivalent? It seems fairly pointless for him to go up ITC when he can piss everything on the two week course. Would this be decided by the TAC on an individual basis or is there set procedure? Thanks in advance.
