I am interested in joining the TA. I particularly have a soft spot for the intelligence corp. I am 32+, I am probably fitter than I have ever been before and I maxed the aptitude test, but this was a number of years ago, when I expressed an interest when I was young. I have also breached the difficult subject matter with my other half because I know there will be potential deployment post training. My worry though is the vetting process. I have been in and associated with groups that would be frowned upon for having 'non-mainstream' political status, and on occasions arrested for minors related. I am not sure how time is relevant to all this, but arrests were awhile ago and it's nothing to do with Islam or Ireland, which seem to be the big worries implied by the form. This is easy to trace and I am totally okay with being honest about this, but reading the application forms makes me think there is no reason to even bother, not now or at any point. Any thoughts? Otherwise, greetings, and sorry for the newbie first post question.
