I haven't been on ARRSE for awhile, but I was hoping for a bit of advice. I have always been interested in joining the Army as an Officer, however I have a young baby, and my husband is also a serving Officer. He is also currently in a deployable posting and is looking at heading out to the sandbox next Christmas. I can't think of any easy solution to this, so am looking at closing my currently open application and applying in a couple of years when my husband is in a non deployable posting. Is there any other way? If I were successful at AOSB, do they allow you to defer entry to Sandhurst? I imagine having a quarter at any stage is totally out of the question due to course structure. I was also wondering if anyone on here has joined up with a young family, or are currently serving and how they found it. Especially if anyone has any experiences of being at Sandhurst and having a family. Thanks in advance.
