Hi, Could anyone please shed some light on this? The 4 Para website, and some other TA websites, list max. age as being 32 to join and yet the MOD (and the British Army website) say 43 for TA, regardless of capbadge. Is 4 Para outside the TA, or is it classed as a form of UKSF, or is it setting its own agenda (so to speak) to keep the not so young out? Thanks to all that reply.
