Hi guys, been reading here for a while and thinking of joining up a TA centre in Nottingham so here is my background. Joined up to regs when 17(I am 26 in Sep) and really didnt prepare enough for Infantry training and left as DOAR after being offered MD for ruptured cartlidges in ribs. I didnt want to leave MD in case it hindered me in future when I wanted to join again. So my ribs litteraly took years to heal they were in a very bad way and I signed up again when I was 21 and trained like I had never before I needed it so bad! Anyway I lost my bottle when a date came through for selection and I doubted wether or not I could do it and I never found out. I am a trucker now and money is decent enough, just split with bird of 4 years and need a new purpose to life then just watching the footy on a Saturday and getting pissed out my tree all the time. I would love to join the Grens again(had a fetish for drill when in cadets as a youngster) but dont know if my body would handle the training, I am currently going gym 3-5 times a week but I had a lot of excess fat to deal with which is just going now so would be a while till I was up to selection standard anyway. I am thinking anyway now my passion has somewhat swayed so maybe TA would give me the kick *********** I need to get back into it and then I could rejoin if I decided it is what I want. Anyway sorry for long post I would like to know if anyone here goes to or knows anything about the TA centres in Nottingham? I have heard bad things about the one in Bulwell where I used to live which is the Infantry or Artillery I cant remember off the top of my head, but I went to Yeomanry one in Carlton and it was a bag of shite(back when I was 21 though), no one gave a shit so I fooked off and went to careers office and wanted regs because I couldnt of been happy with such bad standards. I am not that into tanks anyway so suppose joining a unit I want to will help from the start. You all seem like good guys on here I await your advice on anything that I have said from serving or ex regs on what you think I should do.
