Hello there My application to join is now under way, having completed the BARB/Key skills and the Med Forms. Just waiting for interview dates. My main choice for career path is to join the Infantry. It has been for a long time now but something about my choice has been bugging me a little. I'm 29 at present and will very soon be 30. I'm not insecure about my age but I would like to know if people feel that applicants my age are compatible with that particular role? I would love to know other peoples views on this. I realise that if my decision comes to fruition then I will be training with people much younger than me and have to take orders from people much younger than me etc. This, I feel, does not bother me in the slightest. My family are 100% behind me in my decision. When I completed the BARB with a score of 72, my recruiter told me that a person of my maturity would better suit one of the more trade like roles which I feel is very good advice but I just don't fancy any of the other roles. Anyway, what do other people think? Joining the Infantry at 30, A good idea?
