Went into my local Army Careers today only to be told that I was too old for any branch of the army. Turns out that 17-33 actually means 32yrs, 11 months.

I'm in the TA about to take CIC. Is there any way around the upper age limit?

Why have you left it until now to join?

Thought about the MPGS? :wink:
MPGS needs three years previous service I believe. As he's just joined the TA that'll be a no-no.

Could possibly wait until trained and then go FTRS though?

I've got CIC coming up in a couple of months then prolly a tour next year. FTRS sounds interesting, I'll look into it.
