Gents, Un question per favore. Ive always followed the forces, got a couple of friends who are in the RAF, and even thought about joining up for a while. To cut to the chase, im vaguely-sort of-maybe interested in joining the TA. Im 26, have a v good job in the city, and more importantly, ive got a little boy (2 yrs old, and already likes curry). Now i can do all the research about units etc etc at the recruiting office, but can anyone tell me what the impact the TA has on family life? Im not talking about when deployed, but rather the weekend to weekend, motivation etc etc. Anyone with a family / working in London (by that i mean getting on a train at 7 in the morning, and getting home at 2000 at night) who can offer any insights would be mucho appreciated. Actually any insights from anyone would be good.
