Working Weekends or working with TA

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by polar, Nov 6, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Announced last week was the pairing of TA regiments with Regular units.

    E.g. 34 Signals Regiment will work with 16 Sigs Regt during peacetime (such as hosting them on camp) and 34 Sigs will supply 16 Sigs with IRs for during operations, as 16 Sigs is based in Germany 22 Sigs will provide training support for them as a secondary provider.

    Guess the one army concept is here. Good idea to work with TA and mould them on exercises before they join you at the last minute for Ops.
  2. Polar,
    Never heard of this. Have you got any details on which TA unit is Paired with which regular unit?

  3. Not all of them, 38 Sigs Regt is paired with 7th Armd Sig Sqn and secondary is 2 Sigs Regt. 36 Sigs Regt is 216 (Para) Sig Sqn (no secondary).

    33/35 have 22 Sigs Regt as primary or secondary (one has 7 Sigs Regt as primary).

    One TA regiment is going to be exposed to more kit than any other Sigs Regt, a bit of a sink or swim... I like swimming

    Is 22 Sigs actually formed?

  5. The cadre has been formed at Stafford, the Sig Sqns will be posted in shortly (its only a relocation of existing Sqns)
  6. Almost ... believe one of the Sqns is forming from scratch, others are importing. Big article about it in the latest Wire mag.
