Hello I have been reading these forums for a few months when I first considered joining the British Army. I was born in the USA but have dual citizenship since my father was born in England, I even lived there for about 6 months last year and I absolutely loved it. To get to my question, I know the army performs some type of security check for new recruits and I am wondering how long mine will take since I have lived almost all of my life in the USA, also if there is anything I can do to speed up the process. I have talked to the careers office closest to my family and they have told me nothing regarding the length of time I would have to wait. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.
