Upper age limit for promotion

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by fingers_1661, Oct 20, 2008.

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. Does the army still practice the archaic system where the age of 38 was your lot (ie no promotion after that date, even for those that joined at say 25 & had several years left for their 22)?

    Did anyone ever test this in court?

    I don't believe I ever saw it in black & white but it was common knowledge that it existed & i'm wondering how it may effect anyone joining near the upper age limit these days.

    I take pride in my work, fcuking up people lives is just one of those little pleasures in life.
