Alright chaps, well I've been pondering over joining the TA for a bit and I'm still unsure. I was a Regular from '98 to '01 and I'm now a Firefighter, I've been wanting to get back in the "green kit" for a while, but it is quite a step to go back to it. If you get what I mean. If the unit I potentially join, gets deployed to Afghan, what is the tour length? is it the same as a regular Battalion? or, being TA are they shortend for any reason? These may sound like bone questions but I've been out of the fold for some time now. Any help is appreciated. And I'm prepared for the expected shite back!
