Depends where you are going I suspect but in the CMS(R) world (Litchfiled, Pirbright, Winchester etc) it is not unusual to get recruits through who are closer to 30 than 20. The vast majority of recruits are 17 - 19 yrs old but you will not be on your own being slightly older.techitch said:Im joining the army soon at the age of 24. Just wondering what other peoples views and experiances were on this? Is it 2 old or will i meet other people in same situation?
I'm in that boat too. I'm 28 and have done my selection and am off to Winchester in July. At selection there was one other 28 year old and the rest were young lads 16-22. I'll turn 29 about a month into basic though Still, got to grab life by the balls and do it instead of wishing i'd done it a few years down the line.hrlyndon said:i dont think its a problem at 24, i have just turned 28 and am half way through my application. have my 1st interview in 3 weeks.
Best of luck to you.
