TA - Regular

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by the_eiger, Mar 11, 2013.

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. To join the regulars from the TA; the soldier's medical records must be released to begin an application. To release these medical records a letter, from the TA soldier's current CO, is required recommending/authorising the process to begin.

    My simple question is this:

    During the period of regular application (from the CO's letter until turning up for day 1 of basic) can a TA soldier still serve in his TA unit; or does the writing of this letter automatically end one's career in the TA?

    Thanks
     
  2. Have you thought of asking your units PSAO?
     
  3. No, but I've no doubt I'll get a faster and better-informed answer from here though.
     
  4. Incredibly astute analysis; I am indeed a sleazy creep. But how did you discern that from my two posts alone?

    Back to the original question - yes you can still serve in the TA. You are still only in the application process so there is no conflict. Sorry for the sensible answer
