I do have a sense of humour but I don't appreciate people taking the piss out of me because I'm german. I can take it as a joke but I don't appreciate people rejecting me just because of this reason. Quite out of order

As far as the army is concerned you're not 'half' anything - you're either British, or Commonwealth, or a dirty forriner. If you've got British citizenship or dual nationality, you're fine.

Although if you're blonde and you've got a name like Schmidt stand by for a lifetime of banter.

Chill out Max, you have to have a fkukin thick skin to post on here, cos every fkuker is going to take the p*ss out of you, it's the only way to go. NONE of it is personal, but you put your napper above the parapet by posting your thread, only fair that you take some incoming. As Ord Sgt said, if you have a UK passport, your fine. Good luck

Ok haha. Yes I've got a British passport! And I have had nothing to with Germans! Just to point that out to any1 who has a thing against me just for being half german...

By banter he means piss taking at your expense if you bite as hard as you did earlier.

Its something that you will need to get used too

If you have a British passport you have lived in the UK almost all your life. Then you are a Brit


No need to get all German about it

Haha, I saw the title of this thread and knew exactly what to expect, arrse never fails to deliver.

Maxmw123, as others have said, best bet is to call the army careers office but I don't see it being a problem. I'm in the process of joining myself and I found the AFCO staff very helpful, I'm sure they won't mention the war.
