Hello I am 17 years old and my dad is a retired WO2 and my mum is a State Enrolled Nurse. I am a keen Army Cadet and play a lot of football and cricket.I have a girl friend but nothing serious as I am too young.I did not really like the academic part of school but I tried my best and finished up with 6 GCSEs and a very good reference from my former head master.I have never had any problems with the Police as my mum and dad would kill me if there was and I presonally think that stealing is wrong. I am currently attending the local tech' on an IT course, do voluntary work and am an assistant store manager at McDonalds. I have good BARB scores and did well at ADSC and encountered no problems with the medical.I have signed up in dad's old regiment. My concern is this, having read some of the other recruiting questions on this site, will I be surrounded by criminals, half wits, nut cases and malingerers if I join up? PS I am a figment of your imagination.
