Joining the British army if you're Greek?

Not for me. Just speaking to one of my pals in the gym and he was interested. So is it possible lads?
Any help is appreciated.

The Royal Navy is the usual choice.

He can only join if he has been in the UK and has taken citizenship. I am waiting to find out if ILR allows entry for those from non-commonwealth countries (I don't think it does but want confirmation). If this is the case then the only way he can join will be to take British Citizenship.

Now wait for the normal comment that "as part of the EU they should be allowed to join and I 'd like to see the person that tells them they can't" - Well they can't and others have been turned away. Just like I can't go to Greece and expect to join their Army without taking their citizenship.
 
Tell him to aim for a Jockinese regiment, they too wear natty little dresses like the Greek chaps do.

Don't think he's taken citizenship.
Good post though mate I will let him know he can't do it under the circumstances. Unfortunate but that's the way it goes.
