The Terratorial Army is back in Southend.

I attended  a presentation this evening at the now re-opened TA base in St Luke’s, very interesting.  They are recruiting in Southend and hope to build up their numbers from within  a 15 mile radius. It’s a 5 year commitment, 28 days per year minimum plus 1 year on full duty . Full support is given to employers whilst their staff member is away. The specialism of the regiment  is explosive ordnance disposal,( land mines, IED’s etc.) for which full training is obviously  given but also available are B Tech and other recognised qualifications and apparently quite a lot of team building and outdoor pursuits!
