Having watched Chris Terrill the other night in the documentary "The 55 Year Old Commando" it got me thinking. Could the age for for enlistment into the Regular Army be upped even further. I am well aware that it is only 12'ish months since the AIN fell onto our laps informing us of the upper age limit being raised to 33 (CAMUS 36.11), however, in light of what we saw Chris Terrill do, could it possibly be moved up a little further. I am well aware that Mr. Terril is not the average 55 year old, but then I am not suggesting that the upper age should be moved to 55, that would be ridiculous. Would it be ridiculous to move it to 40? I know many civillian men in that age range who could run rings around men who are half their age. I'm sure the septics is 42 now and the diggers are pretty much the same. I have just had the pleasure of spending a short period of time within ARTD, I did notice quite a few older Phase 2 Recruits knocking about. So they are obviously coming through the doors. Should we therefore not utilise the further manpower that is presently still out there who are over the age of 33? Your answer could well be: "Well they can join the TA." I am aware that the TA upper age was upped to 43 in April 07, however, there are no doubt civilians who are over 33 who would like to make a full time commitment, presently they are unable to. (Other than a short stint on FTRS.) The poll is simple and straight to the a point, a simple "Yes" or "No" Before I forget, well done Chris, I hope I can move like that when I'm 55. Now I've got that off my chest, what do you lot think?
