  1. Hi All,

    I have taken the first step into applying for officer entry at Sandhurst and undertaken the informal interview.

    The thing is I am a serving police officer (5 years experience CID, response, public order units) and have since a kid wanted to join the army. However due to family circumstances this is the first time I have been able to take the first step.

    Now I wanted to ask the experienced amongst you if leaving the old bill for Sandhurst and beyond is a good step to make or if I am making a crazy choice. Thing is due to my age these will be my last two year's of possible entry.

    Also I was wandering if my higher than average age would prevent me from joining certain regiments such as the paras.

    Guys any advice is welcome.
