Back in 1970 there was no Sutton Coldfield. For adult recruits it was attend ACIO. Written tests, medical, and off to depot for adult recruits. A bit longer for juniors. This was at Oxford. I think Sutton Coldfield had just opened as some of the northern recruits had attended when I joined JLR RE in January 1971.Over a year from application to training, mine was less than 6 months back in the 80's. How many drop out between applying and being offered a place? Now that would be interesting figures to see.
And as of about 2001/2002 they started taking Spanish speaking members of EU states too.Mainly Spanish now, though Spanish speaking personnel from their former colonies may still enlist, as far as I know.

With only a Brit passport the o/p should have applied last month, as now she's buggered.
Or would be if male and in the Spanish Legion.
