The TA unit for 17 port and maritime is 165 port regiment, very good unit work and play closely with 17. There are plenty of chances for deployments any thing from a couple of weeks work down at marchwood to full scale tours. At the moment they are on a big recruitment drive after a few leaving when they all got back from op telic after everyone was compulsory mobilised. Seamen/navigator is one of the trades that they are short of, there are a few ex navy, merchant and I would say your skills would be of great use so give them a call.

If I can be of any other use drop me a pm.

Good luck.

No gen dit getting older and want to do the things I never got to do in the Andrew,

Maybe it's just a pipe dream but I came across this website whilst doing research on the TA and thought you may be able to help


As for the wooly jumper i used to wear a White roll neck one at sea not a Navy Blue one.

Thanks

Gotta be the most thought provoking and yet strange sentance seen for a while............meaning it's creating very disturbed piccies in my head. Or the wobbly is kicking in to full effect!

Oh and i'm sure they will "take" guys of any age as long as they are permissive :D

Sorry if this is a bone question but do you have to leave or do people just do it after being mob'd? Just asking as a neibour has been back about six months fron iraq and not seen him in uniform since.

No you don't have to leave, hopefully you will stay. But some people due to personnel reasons do leave after a they have got back from a tour. It's not always easy to juggle going away on tour a wife and kids, mortgage and work who most of the time do not want to see you go.
