TA Units near Northampton

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by McStab, Jun 17, 2008.

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'm in the TA and I may be moving to Northampton soon. I'm aware of the units that are based there but are they any good? Would anyone recommend their unit? I'm currently in the infantry but I might take the opportunity for a 'career change'.

    If I do move I'll be visiting a few units to see for myself but in the meantime I'd appreciate any recommendations / comments. I'd consider anything in a 25 - 30 mile radius of Northampton.

  2. Check out www.tanearyou.org.uk

    If it's not too much of a commute, I can highly recommend B and C Troops, 60 Signal Squadron in Bedford.
  3. Of course there's always 89 Signal Squadron which is based in Rugby.

    A much more civilised way of doing things all round (and an excellent bunch too!)
  4. In Northampton there are the Spanner Monkeys of 118 Recovery (V) Regt REME. But for those more intune with G3 Stabbing and Strangling is 7 Platoon 3 R Anglian an excellent Pl, Pl Comd new in. As a Pte in the Pl you will have fun if you are an NCO then there will be plenty of opportunities.
