Min Recruitment Age

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My son is thinking of joining the Army, and having been out of the loop for a while, what is the absolute minimum age for starting the recruitment process for Adult Entry?

    Any ideas anyone

    Thanks in advance
  2. could be and most probably wrong 17 years 6 months i think.....
  3. He is just about to turn 17, and interested.... If he could start the process now with a view to starting training when he is 17 and 6 months.... Then it would be ideal....
  4. If you start your training when your over 17 years and 1 month, I believe you go in as adult entry.
  5. Thanks Alex.....
  6. Minimum age to start the recruitment process is 15 years 7 months.

    If he is 16 now.. close to 17 then he will most likely be an adult entrant.
