Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

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

  1. Passed briefing but have now been told by my BC that i am to old at the ripe old age of 38 (battalion will not give me an age waiver) to go to MB for a commision in the TA. I have been a gunner for a number of years and have also carried out phase 2 training at my local RTC. Any idea how i can proceed if any ? To far down the food chain for an LE and too old to go the normal route so you can see my problem. My professional qualification are to Msc standard and only in advice and guidance so the prof route is not likely. any thoughts

  2. Welcome to Arrse, Gerryatric.

    I strongly suggest that you post this to the TA Forum; you might find some knowledgeable people there!
