Hi all, I'm looking at options in the TA and not entirely sure of the choices available to me, assuming I have any?? I'm 32 years old with degrees in Computing and Classics. I run several western martial arts clubs so fitness shouldn't be an issue. I have a few questions about starting in the TA. Apologies if they have been asked before: As a general rule do all TA recruits start in the ranks? What is the situation with regards to officers? Are they taken from the regulars or is it possible to join the TA as an officer and if so how does this work? Assuming it is possible to join as an officer, what are the requirements? Any links or info would be veyr much appreciated.
