Hi guys, just a quick one, I've just signed up and applied for infantry soldier I'm 29 years old and just wanted to see a point of view from you guys if that's too old to join? Had a few people (non military) and said don't do it I'm too old.

Thanks guys

This has been asked before.
Go for it.
Back in my time it wasn't uncommon.
 
Get yourself fit. Plenty of information on the forum already about running and fitness. Start yesterday, preferably the day before yesterday.

Back in the mists of time way back int he 1970's and 1980's when soldiers used muskets blokes in the late 20's used to regularly join - so you have no problem.

Get yourself some decent kneepads too that you can tuck under your combats if you do not get them issued. Many reasons, but in theis case to help keep knee damage to a minimum when out in the field.

Good luck, its the best job in the fcuking world.
