A lot of Signals, Int Corps etc. roles could be carried out by experienced people up until 70's easily - look at GCHQ for example.Do you reckon it's because chinning off blokes at 55 can sometimes mean your loosing a load of admin staff, drivers etc that do all the unseen shit that keep units running smoothly ? I knew of reserve units where practically all MATTs ( except phiz ) were covered by the old n bold, ditto drivers for minibus etc.
Except the US Army has already extended its max re-enlistment age and is actively advertising for re-enlisters.Not only desperate, but I should think suicidal. The yanks must think that UK & Co Ltd is now a fully functioning paid up, all bells and whistles, banana republic, total unable to function on a higher military level than the Vatican Swiss guard............ Makes you proud to be British.......NOT!
