    I'd fucking love to go back. In fact i asked about it about 2 years ago, caused loads of shite with the wife as she didn't want me to, but anyway my current employer stated they wouldnt allow it, so after i finally persuaded my missus to be ok with it, i had to bin the idea anyway. bollocks.
    I get the feeling in years to come im gonna look back on it as a massive opportunity wasted. Always gonna think i missed out
    Bullshit I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!

    to be fair the TA is for the regs who still miss the commaraderie and the job. but for the people who join straight off are mostly just enjoying playing soldiers.

    Its worth joining the TA to gain an idea of the way the Army works, getting used to drill, physical training, weapon drills, putting up with vast ammounts of bullshit and being beasted as well as the odd shower rape I would recommend it.

    Even in a support arms regiment within the army if you are used to being at home and your mam looking after you or giving her a big hug on a night you will still find basic training a big steaming pile of horse shite, anyone who disagree is lying because it is a utter steaming pile of horse shit, but its meant to be, if you can say to yourself I could do that if your typical day includes; Getting up at 5:00am getting washed and cleaned, shaved and get rid of any over growing hair anywhere, then sorting your billet out, putting your kit on making sure you dont have any loose threads or egg/chocolate or spunk stains on your kit, ironing your kit if you couldnt be arse the night before or you spent the night weaping about missing home.
    Then having a clean around your sections room and making sure your personal drawer is locked.
    Going out on the drill sqaure and being inspected and declaring that you are fit to work today, having some rather nice grub, then getting changed into PT gear going on one of so many fitness runs, 1.5 mile run, 6 mile run, a big run, shuttle runs, runs up some hills, running on the spot, run around camp or maybe some curcuits or some other type of running.
    then you might have a spot of dinner again with this you dont just wander around you have to move together as a platoon.
    after lunch it might be a session on rifle drills, stripping the remarkable rifle which isthe SA80, stripping it, putting it back together, shouting CORRECT a lot. or you may get to try the SAT range.
    You might also try out some fucking weapon exercise 1,2,3,4.
    After dinner it might be a class session on something really interesting like ranks of the british army or cap badges of the army or a session on terrorism or one that tells you dont want to be a piggy solider and eat loads of shite.
    Then after all that you might get some time to get some downtime after about 7pm, thats where you will have to clean your kit, iron your kit, make a quick phonecall home and cry to your mother a little more.

    If you can put up with this for 6 weeks you will be tested on how well you march and asked some questions about your regiment if you pass you get to go home and see your mam, if not Im affraid its backsquad for you where you get to do it all again, if you pass you get to come back for another 6 weeks and do some more shite but they let you walk to the Naffi on your own

    Highlights: Being CS Gassed GAS IS FOR WINNERS, Kit Issue you get loads of pretty cool kit like NBC kit and get your own rifle (mine ws called Trudy) you have to give this back after basic training (and no you dont get to take it to bed with you)

    Shower Raping - giving not taking

    Low Lights:
    Beasting - this is were you are treated like a little piece of shit for about 20 mins made to do push ups, runs, stress positions, sucking off the RPs or being shower raped.

    Having to stand around whenever you see an NCO and wait for them to say you can move

    Not being able to walk to the Naffi on your own

    Being shower raped - Recieving

    Crying yourself to sleep

    Sleep Deprevation

    Completion of basic trainnig

    on top of this you have NCO;s everywhere saying stand by, get your fucking hands out of your pockets, come here you fucking diesease, you evil fuckin creature from beyond the depths of hell, you fucking lizard, you dirty fuckin recruit, get over here you fuckin creep, what the fuck are you doing there you fucking evil fuckin creature, what the fuckin hell are you doing you fuckin loser, fuckin stand by you horrible fuckin creature, fuck off then, you get the idea
