TA near Derby

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by The_Therapist, Jul 24, 2007.

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. Hey, I was wondering if anyone can help.....

    I live in Derby, and I want to join TA, preferably somewhere that offers training as a Medic...

    Tried the Army website, but pages are still under construction, therefore rendering them pretty useless....

    I'm hoping that someone on here can point me in the right direction, please.

    Thanks, The Therapist.

    Clicky the link in my sig block and fire in your postcode. Admittedly it does depend on your local unit actually having added their contact details but you never know.

    Edit: In fact, here you go

    Detachment C (222) Medical Squadron (Volunteers)
    Sinfin Lane TA Centre

  5. Yeah, tried the map, thanks sixty and msr, but it doesnt really give me much info on what I'll actually be doing if I join.....

    If anyone goes, and can tell me what its like, I'd really appreciate it.....especially if you've done the Combat Med Tech training? Or if anyone knows what it involves/ what qualifications you need to join?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again, Therapist

  8. Are you a medic already? If you are (nurse/doctor) join 222, if not look at 46 Signal Squadron - I don't think they have a medic which would put you in a enjoyable position (needed, respected, etc). I believe CMT in medic units are pretty limited in what they can do except from put up tents etc but in a non medic unit they have a lot more to do (get to treat people etc not just be another bod in the unit)

    p.s. If your in the NHS I'll even show you a medical computer system thats been delivered on time and on budget. Sorry auto pilot/geek
  9. Thanks polar, thats some really good advice....I think I'll look into 46 Signal Squadron then.

  10. Sorry, just to add...If anyone reading this is in any of the above mentioned Squadrons, can you give me a bit of background info on them.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the responses,

  11. 46 Sig Sqn have the best attendance in 38 Sig Regt so they must be doing something right.

    p.s. The rumours about kinky sheep parties I believe are false.
