Hi, I need a bit of advice or more precisely, guidance about the London TA scene. I had a place at RMAS for September but have decided not to take it and go down the TA route. I am infantry focused and so wish to join one of those units but am unsure as to which one. I would like to get on and so want to join a unit that would facilitate this - my initial thought was to look at the RMR but having done that I think that the time commitment may be too high in terms of the extra training that you need to do to pass the course. My first question would be is 4 Para similar in that respect, i.e. significant extra time commitment? Other than that, I have thought of the HAC but have heard mixed views - it would be interesting to hear the view of someone from one of the local TA units on them. Last but by no means least is the London Reg. If I had been fortunate enough to get through RMAS then I would hopefully have been Rifles bound so they do seem attractive although, as this forum has shown, there appears to be some infighting which is not at all attractive to a prospective recruit. Additionally, it appears that the RGJ have left to join the RRV - is this still in London and if so where? As a final point although I was due to go to RMAS, I am not definitely going for TA Officer. If such an opportunity came up then great, but I really just want to get in and get on with stuff. Thanks for any advice - if any further clarification is needed then please ask away.
