I am hearing so many conflicting reports on this at the moment - does anyone even know, or are we following the age old Army tradition of 'make it up as you go along'? I have been informed by my local AFCO that even as a former Regular I will now have to go through the full recruitment process as if I was joining the Army for the first time, I went in yesterday to complete BARB testing etc. If they seemed certain that I had to go through this ball ache I would just get on with it, but I keep coming away with the distinct impression that they really don't know either way. Anyone with a definitive answer please get back to me, I am sure that there are other former Soldiers getting pissed about in a similar fashion. Its just as well we don't need 30,000 Soldiers of a Regular standard to appear from nowhere and join the TA in the next few years... Right?
