I am looking to find out how old the youngest person is to be promoted to Cpl. Am researching for a book . I have heard so far how some older new recruits are being fast tracked to promotion due to age but have no experience. So to start with I would like to know about the youngest Corporal and their experiences of tours.

Is that true? So if I sign back on, what rank will they give me after being out for 4 years?
Crikey, I left as a C/Sjt does that mean I can be CDS.

I always fancied the job of the CBF Cyprus. That or heading up the garrison school sixth form.

I suspect the queue outside that office has grown by a few hundred thousand. :)

Shall all us older folk just settle for 4 stars, a fat pension and gardening leave?

Would of thought one of the "boy soldiers" who lied about their age to join up during WW1 would be a candidate.
