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. If you are about to leave the regular army have you thought about a career in the TA? If you dont leave it to long between leaving the regs and joining the TA you can keep your rank and therefore same pay.
  2. How longs too long????
  3. I thinks its no longer than 2 years, but i would need to confirm that
  4. If you leave within 5 years, then you immediatly go onto full bounty. If you go into the same trade that you were in the regulars, then you will keep your rank.

    If you are changing to a completely new trade (Inf to REME, for example) then it is up to the unit at what rank you get. However, most (I hope) would be sensible and recognise the experience and knowledge that you have.

    I feel a wiki page coming on...
