I am currently preparing myself for an application to join the army, though I am nearing the upper age limit. I am 30 at the moment but by the time of my application I will be 31. I know that the chances are I will get into to Phase One training before the age limit is reached but I am just interested in if anyone knows of many older entrants in Basic. I was in the RN for a year back in 05 ( medically unfit for the Submarine service and so quit to join the army only to fail medical - no probs now) and there were a few trainees in their thirties but not that many. I am fit and do not think I will have any problems there but am a bit worried they will look at my age and the fact I failed my medical in 05 (lung capacity test) and refuse me straight out. Anybody have any views on this?
