  1. hi all, i am curious as to why the irish have to be a uk resident for 5 years before they can join the TA, i think that rule is only out a couple of years, but yet one can get a residency waiver , [if you are british, which i am] for the RAF RESERVES and can join up to the age of 50 , [55 with previous] and the TA only accept you up to 43 . why cant the TA accept people at that age. thanks for any comments regarding this.

    thanks,, a frustrated wanna be soilder

  8. ooh ye of little intelligence, the irish,blacks and even dogs have given their lives for the british army and for england, its easy knowing you are just some one who hides behind a keyboard and mouths off and gives the decent ones a bad name,reminds me of someone i know who shit himself while on patrol, a car came by and for some reason it back fired, well this trooper [coward] let out a screem and fell to the ground convinced he had been shot and started crying, needless to say he did not stay in the army too long after that, sounds a bit like you

  14. The only time I've ever heard a car back firing was in an Ealing comedy.

    Did your cowardly friend also end up getting an RSM's pension after he'd crossed the Channel in a Stalwart?

    I can smell burning from your trouser region.
