I'm going through the process of signing up for a career in the Army. Just recieved a letter informing me that I have to attend an insight course for 5 days at Longmoor Camp, it says that I must attend or my application will be put on hold for a year. I thought this course was attended by choice not compulsory. Is this a new rule that all recruits have to attend? After this I then go for the normal selection. By the way, I'm 26 so seems strange that I have to attend this.
