  2. upper age limit for Infantry is 43
  3. that sounds great i thought i might have missed out
    will get the ball rolling and hopefully will be in before 43
    and 43 is the upper age with out previous?
    and 1 other thing is there an age limit on tours within ta compared to regs
    and thanks for your response so quickly
  4. 43 is the upper age limit without any previous military experience. If you are fit enough and pass the medicals then no worries.

    As for tours - the fact that you get into the TA basically means you are eligable for a tour. That's what they said to me anyway.

    Good look mate
