Good stuff mate. I'm 27 with 2 kids (not single) big oldies will pull through mate.

See you at Catterick 10th Aug.
good luck mate, I'm 28 and was the oldest at selection :D us oldies will teach those young'uns a thing or two........wont we? 8O
I think I was oldest by atleast 3 years?

Not sure if there was a 26 yr old on mine though, I seem to remember there was?
I can see the pro's being the life experience that 30years have given you will work in your favour. You will be able to build a better rapport with the training staff and find it easier to deal with the sh1tty times in training.

The cons would be having to train with people a lot younger and maybe less mature than yourself, The other thing is that i guess the homesickness issue will affect you a little more as you have the kids to think about. As long as you have the right attitude then their shouldn't be any other issues that i would foresee

Good luck with it bud!
