Sorry if this is an idiotic question but someone told me ages ago that if you are over the age of 23 when you join the TA you get a promotion to Lance Corporal straight away.

Is this true?

Personally I thought the guy was talking out his arrse but thought I'd ask anyway.

Cheers.

The way this guy described it to me was that it was to do with maturity etc. Im in the process of joining 2 Royal Irish at the min but im not going to knock on my sgts door and go "whats all this promotion craic about then?" I'll get myself tagged as a bloody oxygen thief!

Tell you what, pass your recruits course, spend long enough in your unit to be recommended for a PJNCO course, and then attend and pass said course.

At that point, knock on your OCs door and say "sir, I am now 25 years old" (or as appropriate).

You will then be considered for promotion to LCpl based on your age.

Edit: So far before joining you have yourself lined up for promotion to LCpl and attendance on P Coy. Concentrate on passing your recruit cadre first!

Does your village have free internet access for you as their idiot to ask bone questions?

FFS of course it's true! Were you asleep when they did that bit of the brief.... 'oh, and you boys over 23, you get a tape straight away, so if you're nearly 23, come back and join in 6 months time, and you'll get one too'!

WAH! WAH, WAH, WAH!

Look guys I thought this was a place to ask questions not get a slagging. (Well, maybe in the NAAFI)

Im just curious about some rumours that I heard and (to duke) what my CA sgt is telling me. Sorry again for sounding stupid I just dont know any better.
