Open night organised for Mansfield TA

NEW recruits are wanted in Mansfield’s Territorial Army (TA) as they set up an open evening showing all the employment opportunities available.

People will be able to go and find out about the Mansfield soldiers themselves and the lives they lead, even the chance to try out the kit and weaponry as well as a surprisingly large range of career options being presented such as chefs, drivers, medics, caterers, infantrymen, engineers, signallers and many more.

Colonel Kevin Halus said: “There has never been a better time to be a Territorial Army soldier and we have so much to offer potential candidates - an active lifestyle, the opportunity for travel and adventure as well as first-class training and access to further skills and qualifications. No matter what your talents, you can get involved.”

The open night in Mansfield will be held on Tuesday, 19th February, on Bath Street, from 7.30pm to 9pm.
