With the impending raise in the age of leaving school, how is it going to effect the Armed Forces? I have several thoughts on the matter even though it may not happen while im in the green suit. 1. Will the forces raise the lower age limit of joining up in line with leaving school? Most applicants would then be around 18-19 years of age older more mature possibly/possibly not. 2. Would it be worth while bringing back Junior leaders for 16-18 year olds? This would ensure we get the standard of educated and trained soldiers that we require, no more need for numeracy and literacy lessons at the AEC. Any more thoughts on this matter?
