This is to explain the application process
If not dealing with a Platoon & its Plt Comd directly who would guide you through & explain the process, applications are to be submitted via the clubs recruitment email address. If this is the case then the following procedure applies:
Firstly, submit an email stating your interest, a brief on your background, service history, where you live, etc etc.. along with any questions that you may have. This email will be appraised & replied to. You will be notified if there is a Platoon in your area & they would be advised. Your questions would be answered with the opportunity to ask any further if you wish.
If there is no Platoon in your area, you will have the choice of 2 options:
1/ If no Plt exists in your area then you can join as a solo Nomad style member of the Mercenary Plt. This means that although a member of the club, there may not be any other members local to you to ride with regularly.
2/ If you have the interest to, & know of or have the ability to recruit a minimum of 4 other suitable applicants besides yourself, then the option to create a new Plt in your area can be pursued.
Once you are happy & wish to proceed we will send you (& any other interested parties if applicable), an application form to complete. This will need to be returned via email or to the clubs P.O. Box, along with supporting evidence of military service, such as discharge papers etc, & also a copy of your valid motorcycle license, & a passport style photo.
Once your application has been received & processed, you will be notified if you are successful & able to proceed to being a Recruit. This stage will commence upon receipt of the joining fee, (the amount is listed on the application form). The Recruit training is the Probationary period & you will be able to wear certain club patches, this is before becoming a full patched member, this period can generally last approximately 1 year.
After completion of the Recruit period, if your membership & club commitment during this time has been satisfactory, you will be made a full member & will receive the complete patches.
If you have any questions regarding this process or wish to express an interest in joining, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
