Im just looking to find some experiences of yours in the territorial army, im sure some of you must be ex-ta. What is the general view of the T.A in the army and how does there training/day to day activities compare? I've already passed selection and join the Army on the 22nd nov but my sisters ex has joined the TA, he says it will prepare him for the 'real' army. He also says that T.A selection and training are the same as the army but im not so sure he's right. Cheers for your help fell... chaps!
