Even though I'm a regular reservist rather than a member of the TA, I thought I'd stick this here as the best place to get a decent answer... I mobilised for Telic in 2004 and then again in 2005 and the process basically involved phoning up Glasgow, getting told there were plenty of posts, signing on the dotted line and Bob's your uncle. I'm considering volunteering for Herrick but have a couple of concerns that I hope someone can help me with. First of all, on looking at the army website, it appears that there are all sorts of forms to be filled out (employment preference proforma etc etc) and sent away but it's a little unclear whether the FTRS one needs to be completed for mobilisation as well. Also, looking at the OCE List on armynet, there are virtually no posts for junior ranks. Have things changed since the days when there were bloody hundreds of us serving in FP, stagging on etc etc? Is that list the definitive guide to what's available or are the above types of posts still available? Am I even looking in the right place? Basically, I don't want to make a spec application if there's no chance of anything coming up. Cheers in advance for any help. I would give the COSS a call but would get fcuked off at the high port due to my current reserve status (which doesn't end until November).
