Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just thinking outloud, heres a question ive come up with....

    Im 23 in october and i was thinkin if i done the full 22 years ill be 45(omg scary!) anyway at what age at joining are you not aloud to do 22 years?
  2. Being able to retire on a full pension at 45! Happy with that.
    I'm 29 in October and I'm joining up for the full 22 even if my years spent in the Navy don't count.

    I'll still be able to retire at 51 a damn better option than working yourself into the grave in civvy street.
  3. Anything is better than civvy street, including doing the worlds worse task in the army. Nuff said.
  4. Dude, are you even in the Army yet?
  5. I think it is now 32(depending on what job?) the oldest you can join and do 22 years.
    I think the average age is going up now the versatile engagement is coming in as well.
    It getting a bit like the yanks they have soldiers up to the age of 60 who still deploy on ops to Irag, Afghan etc.
  6. I was 23 and I retire at 45 WOOHOOO
