Hey all, I am currently 21 years old. I understand that you must be a citizen of the UK to join. Does this include Commonwealth nations? Canada? Australia, etc? Could I hypothetically go to Canada, live there for three years, become a Canadian citizen, and then fill out an overseas application for British Army service? Reason why I want to join: From all that I have read the British Army has harder training, but at the same time, your standards are lower. Here in the US, the tiniest medical issue can disqualify you from serving. If you tell the doctor you had heartburn once, he diagnoses you right there with acid reflux. If you say you had a headache once, you get diagnosed with recurrent migraines. It's completely ridiculous. Almost everyone has to lie to get in, and as much as I wouldn't mind that, that's not an option if you have medical records that can be looked up by them. I browsed the JSP medical standards documents and I would qualify under your standards. There is nothing more that I want than the military lifestyle, and would gladly change countries to obtain it. I also have a great admiration for your country and its culture. P.S. One of those horror stories came from a friend who was discharged fraudulently. Would this be an option for him too? Would a negative discharge from the US mil have any impact on joining the British Army? I apologize if this has been addressed but i saw nothing on it in FAQs.
