Made my first steps towards joining the army today. Filled out the application for Royal Engineer (bricklayer) Just wondering if my weight will be a problem, I have no problem with the fitness requirements but am over weight by a couple of stone. Do they go purely on a Height / Weight basis. Or is it more along the lines of if you can do the fitness it doesnt matter how much you weigh. Ive got no problems putting in the hard work and losing it if needed, but just thought id ask before i go for my barb.
