Joining the paras query

Hey all, thanks for taking the time to read my post!

First things first, I've always wanted to join the army since I was pretty young and finally applied when I was 20 and in the end I received a deferral on my paperwork side of the medical process.

Putting that aside, I have always been fascinated by the parachute regiment and that would be where my first choice would be if I was to join, followed up by the rifles. But my only concern is that once my deferral is over and if im accepted I would be 23 nearly 24 during basic training and I'm wordering if I'll stick out like a sore thumb because of my age! ( I do look quite youthful mind you) but would this be the case? Does anyone know the average age of an infantry or just an army recruit nowadays?

Thanks for reading, I hope you can help me and my apologies if this thread is in the wrong place!
Again, thanks.
 
24 isn't out of the ordinary.
