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?

  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
