  1. Hi

    i would like to join the TA infantry,
    iam fit and 41. i have previous experience with the Signals attended regular for about a year then relocated south. I contacted the local unit, wont be naming them, and he said their unit wont be taking people on over 34 ( unless previous experience ), but the situation is different for different units.
    any advise would be welcome

    Try a different unit?
  3. Well having googled it, it would appear that the limits are 17-43.
