How long do the TA normally like you to of passed all your basic before sending you onto tour's? One of my main reasons of joining was to do a tour and I know i'm not ready at the mo but would really like to do a tour as soon as I can. Do your unit select the best soliders to send onto tour's or can you just stick your name down and away you go...? what is the process like leading upto tours? what is the pre deployment training like? sorry if I seem abit of a mong with some of the questions but just wanted to know a bit more regarding tours and the process the TA goes through.
