I'm a 21 y/o South African citizen, and I've been living here my whole life. I would really like to join the British army, but I heard about an anti mercenary law that the government passed, making it illegal for South African citizens to fight for foreign armed forces. I AM eligible to apply online for the British army, and I have read through the entire British army website, but is it legal for me as a South African to enlist? I also heard that if you have served, you can be arrested and charged when you go back to South Africa. Obviously that is not what I want. I also heard that you have to revoke your RSA citizenship if you serve. So I guess there are 2 options (IF I even make it into the army): -Serve and get arrested when I come back to South Africa. -Serve, and SOMEHOW become a British citizen after I served, and stay in the UK, so I don't have to come back to SA. I would really appreciate advice from someone with a legal background (preferably someone who knows about the anti mercenary bill) AND someone who knows about the recruiting process for a person in my position. PLEASE HELP URGENTLY!!!! Thank You.
