  1. Hey guys,

    I'm a Canadian and I am thinking about joining the BA. I was wondering if there are any Canadians out there who have joined or anyone who knows a Canadian that did, and how that went over......

    Does anyone know some ifferences between the Canadian Army and the British, to help me make a decision?

    Thanks
     
  2. Plenty of Canadians have served in the British Army.My own unit had one in Borneo and Aden and two in Belfast in the early 70's.So if you want to join come on over.
