Hi everyone,

I left the Army a few years ago now and I was considering joining the Reserves. I'm just looking for some feed back from ex-regulars that went into the reserves after leaving the Army.

I'm not there yet but I will be joining the Reserves when I'm out.

From what I can gather you need to attend 27 days (19 if joining a National unit) to qualify for your bounty (ex-Regs go straight for the max bounty of £1700), thats obviously on top of your daily pay rate.

There is a financial scheme for regulars to join the reserves and get a commitment bonus for it, but I think you have to join up within 1-2 years of leaving to qualify. It was all part of their plan to get current and competent blokes into the Reserves after the redundancy tranches.

I am an ex regular, I joined the reserves 5 years ago and I am happy to answer any queries on the reserves.
