The Territorial Army is an integral part of the British Army. When you decide to join, you will become one of some 59, 000 soldiers. Like you, these soldiers tend to have normal full time civillian occupations and have given up some of their leisure time to become part of highly trained units which will support and augment the Regular Army.

But its not all work and no play. As you can see from below and will find out when you join use, "it's more than a hobby, it's an adventure". Over a period of time you will make new friends. They will be friends that you can joke and laugh with, but above all they will be friends you can depend on in a crisis.
