Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. I've just noticed (unless I'm missing something major!) that the upper age limit for Officers in the RAF regiment is 36. I don't want to start another Rockapes v the rest thread, but I'm interested in this, given that advanced age can close a lot of doors to Army officers. Despite the RAF professing to be a similar light infantry organisation, they don't seem to consider applicants age, only fitness standards. What's ARRSE's wisdom on this?
