Right, I'll cut to the chase with this; I'm a 32 year old Royal Navy SNCO who is very, very unhappy with having had to man a desk for the last 3 years with no prospect of this changing. I have been offered a commission but again, I would be tethered to a desk. Rather than completely fcuk the forces off I'm seriously considering the Army. My question is having looked at the options available my age has become an obstacle. Can anyone tell me whether the fact that I'm not walking straight off the street would help in any way to being offered dispensation to come across with an age waiver if I were to apply as an Army Officer? Or am I fcuked and doomed to spend the rest of my life doing this rrrrrrrubbish. I would ask at a careers office but my present location is devoid of one. Any help would be appreciated, to be fair incoming and banter would be also as it may break the monotony. Cheers!
