TA, age restriction? Too old?

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. Hi my husband is a Captain in the TA. He was in the regs for 4 years and has been in the TA for 15 odd years. So over 20 years service. He is 49 years old. Will he be able to transfer to the Australian army when he gets back from tour? Or is he to old now?
     
  2. Too old and hes not a soldier. Its his hobby.

  4. Never mind that shit. Assuming 1988's your year of birth, well there's rules on here you know. Show us your tits?
     
  5. Why can't your husband use the internet to find the relevant information or God forbid, pick up the telephone and speak to the relevant people?

    Is he up on bricks at the moment like you?
     
  6. Piss off love.

  7. Twats mostly. We're even twats to each other so, despite your first impression you are being treated quite, quite fairly.
     
  8. When i went to school, 4 plus 15 was 19....not over 20.
     
  9. So you're young enough to be thinking about joining but your husband's 49? And thinking about going to Australia, even though you're joining the British Army?

    Something doesn't smell right here and it's not just your clopper. I call windup. But just in case, show us your tits.
