When looking on the Army website about rejoining it says that ex regular members may rrejoin provided that the end of their 22 years service does not go beyond the armys upper age limit.

Does the 22 years take into account previous service?

Whats the upper age limit?
Thanks for the answer think you are probably right.

So with rejoining i know that everyone goes on the new pension scheme but does the pension clock start from zero again or do you carry on from where you left off for example after 13 years. ??????
It all depends on WHICH pensions scheme yu are told to join. If it is the old one then it is continued, if the new one then if start from zero. You end up with 2 pensions pots, unless they let you transfer the old one into the new one.
So if I assume that its the new pension scheme.

I am 32 now with 13 years previous service, if I apply to rejoin does the army lookat me thinking 'can this bloke do 22 years from now in the army and still be 55 at the end of that service'.

Or does in this example the Army take into account my previous service.
Or is the Army website wrong
Or is each case judged differently

Or ect ect ........
