I was wandering with this new max age of entry raised to 33 how things will work in terms of specialist unit application. For instance some guy joins in late 20's or early 30's, fit and switched on, then wants to go SRR, Pathfinders, SAS etc... I mean i take it is 3 years served for all 3 and i believe at least lance corporal for Pathfinders, so these guys join up and do exactly the same job as every other soldier and do the same tests yet after 3 years wants to go to one of these units as others in their battallion but they cant because they are too old? Isnt it like 34 or somethng for selection, 28 for SRR and not sure about pathfinders but probably a cut off of some type. I can imagine alot of late joiners now thinking cool get out of this sedentary civvie life and get to do what i should of done years ago, they join up all keen, do the same as every other guy then think right lets do selection and bang, too old, kicked in the nuts !
