Hey All, I am thinking of joining up with my local TA, hopefully the Royal Welsh 3rd. I thought that a few months fitness training wouldn't go a miss before approaching them and having a look around etc. In normal life I am an area manager for a company that supplies industrial equipment and IT solutions. However I am unsure whether a recent operation I have had would render me unsuitable to join, I have had a ligament built in my knee (broke the old one lol) and the surgeon has now told me that it's as good as new!, I know that existing army personnel have had the same op and been returned to full active duty after about 6 months. Would this stop me joining the TA, even if I passed the basic fitness test?. I have no problems with my knee anymore and running cross country, jumping, kneeling or anything else like that does not cause any problems.
