G'day, I am 17 and live in Australia, I just got knocked back from the Australian Army and am shattered. My colour perception (cp3) isnt sufficient for service in the infantry, artillery or armoured corps (all i wanted to do). I want nothing else than to be a soldier and if it means moving to Britain Ill happily do it. I have four questions What is the colour perception requirement for the infantry? Could I persue a commision having started out as a soldier? Would it be more difficult than sitting out the required time of residency (5 years max i think) for an officer and applying directly to Sandhurst? Are there many Aussies serving in the British army? Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
