TA Questions.

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. I just left the regular army (infantry) and miss it a bit so was considering the TA. Once you've joined, how long do you have to serve for? I heard it was 2 years.

    Whats the deal with tours? My battalion is sending companies to afghan soon, can I volunteer to get attached back to my old regular army battalion?

    If I get mobilised can I turn them down a certain number of times before I'm forced to go?

  2. You sign on now for 12 years, but you can leave at any time you like.

    Not really an expert on tours (alas), but there is "no" compulsory mobilisation now - it's all intelligent/voluntary.

    The best thing to do is pop down to your local unit and ask them.
