  1. Hi,

    I am 15 years old and 2 months. When do you think I should contact my local army careers office? Also, if you want to join the Grenadier Guards, how fast do you have to be able to do 1.5 miles?

  2. Hello Buddy my name is josh and a few months ago I was in exactly the same position I am now 15 and 6 months the earliest that you can apply is 15 and 7 months so I am applying on the 15 of febuary and my advise to you would be go to the careers office as soon as possible and start practising the barb test online and going for runs and doing chin ups, press ups and sit ups everyday to work on your fitness but don't push your self too hard because you may cause injury to your self and for the 1.5 mile run I'm going in for the infantry light role and my time is around 11 minutes but I'm not to sure for you but that is something to discuss with the careers advisor so good luck and I may even see you there in september maybe.

    Josh :)
  3. Ok thanks - Good Luck!! :)
