  1. Hi,

    Firstly i just like to say hello, new on here and also new to the TA, completed RAW1&2 + Field weekend.

    I've asked a couple of times at my unit questions relating to mobilisation, but i'm getting a vague response, so i'd like to ask the forum the questions as there seems a wealth of knowlege and experience on the subject within this forum.

    1. What happens regarding the difference in pay, do the army top your military pay up to match your salary in civvy street

    2. What are the criteria for call up, is there one?

    3. What are the chances of call up?

    I'm asking these as these are the main ones that my good lady is asking me about my joining, she's cool regarding that mobilisation might take place at some point, but any info would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks
     
  2. Cheers Fella,

    answers all the q's that i had
