signed up for the regulars or reserve. The regulars was for 6 yrs. The reserve was for 2 yrs. During war or Nat. Emer. both could be extended 6 months after the war or Emer. ended.
Thats why you will see V6 on some. I wanted to
sign on in the regulars for six yrs. My Aunt who
I was staying with talked me into signing up in the Reserves and if I liked it I could always sign on for another six yrs. as all active service counted the same. I,m glad that she did.
Not that I disliked the service as I,m glad I got
the experience and was able to serve my country in time of need. Al
