I realise the obvious answer is "google it, idiot" - but I thought I was sound in the knowledge that the minimum age for TA entry was 17 and 6 months. However, as I'm nearing that point I've been looking into it more, and I've found conflicting info - 17, 17:6, and 18 all from various MoD posters, handouts, websites etc. I guess some of the difference is probably when you can apply, and when you can start training or something? But given that the usual advice on here is "just rock up on a parade night", what age can I do that? Tuesday that follows my 17th birthday? Or 6 months later? Or is it 18th? Thanks! EDIT: It'll be 6 RIFLES if regiment makes a difference.
