What the REGS think of the TA!

What do you think of the TA how are they different when they get called up from the regs Army??? do you think there up to the right standard??
Stouty old chap. My advice is either trawl through the TA forum or, better still, talk to the lads in your TA centre, who can answer all your questions.

Either way, if I was you I'd delete the post and cancel this neon-signed invite to wahs, pish-taking and war-stories (not to mention umpteen links to umpteen previous threads).
I think that your reply to the originator of this post is the kindest thing I have read on the site since joining it.

I did not mean to make it sound like that I just wanted to know if the TA training is just as good as the Regs
Dammit man, there you go again! How can we protect you from the arrsssssee masses when you keep on doing this.

We all know what you mean. If you mean, are we trained the same standard? We're part-time, limited role, have less access to training time, you work it out. If you mean are the people different themselves? No, we've all got 2 arms and legs and are human. If you mean is the quality of training as good? Well, it varies, but generally more time and more resources means better training.

Mate, leave it. Ask the lads in the TA centre, or if you can't leave your keyboard alone, ask something a little more specific and, in the interests of your own self-preservation, something a little less, well....... mongy.

You've used up too many of your nine lives (Yes, I did note your bone question on the RLC site asking about driver trades) so if I were you, I'd slope off for a wee while and work out how to effect a decent regain..

Rickshaw, well done for your restraint. But I fear it's only a matter of time before this all turns a bit 'Lord of the Flies' and everyone starts hunting down and sticking piggy....


Well then Stouty, you have been given your answer - Ask at your TA centre. Just please stop making an Arrse of yourself on here. People have generally been polite to you so far. It will not be long before the politeness fades........

Too late - the pig stickers have arrived :lol:
<Struggling to keep the love>........ if the good people down at your TAC can't give you a decent steer, pop into the ACIO - they are paid to answer all bone.... sorry, general questions. You could opt for a more informal approach. Try placing a crate of beer in the bus stop outside Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, on a Friday afternoon and offer the nice young people a beer if they'll answer your questions. Try being a little more adventurous and take a weeks break in the Brecon Beacons later this month. When a bloke in uniform, carrying a BFOB*, puffs past you, engage him in questions about the best trade to go for in the Army. Wnhen you wake up in the local A&E, ask about careers as a driver with your local NHS Trust. There you go Stouty; lots of good, free advice.
