TA Recruitment

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by dave_bohica, Nov 19, 2012.

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 am looking at joining the TA after 24 years colour service and was wondering if I would keep the rank I am leaving at and what is the bounty these days...
  2. Retaining rank usually depends on what regiment you're joining and how long you've been out. For instance, non armoured guys joining us have kept their rank but on the condition they passed the necessary trade courses within an agreed time scale. This may vary from unit to unit and is almost certainly also subject to the CO's discretion.

    Depending on where you're at after your 24 years, there is also the question of availability of a slot to match your rank.

    The taste of paradise can be found here.
  3. If you are still in then speak to your RCMO and get the significant bonus on offer for transferring.

    There is a recent DIN out which explains everything. Go and see your local TA unit and ask them about it. Don't be fobbed off with 'at CO's discretion' comments - get them to pull the DIN off the system- it's all in black and white.
