Hi folks. I'm 28 and male (sounds like an intro on a bloody dating website ). I work as a police officer and I need a career change I've decided after 6 years as a bobby / Detective. I've toyed with joining the RNR for some time and now I'm seriously contemplating joining the RN hopefully as an officer (graduated in uni a while back - oh a distant memory!). I'm on Â£30,000 a year at the mo so this is the reason why I'd want to go in as an officer as I simply can't afford the paydrop. My question is, am I too old (in practice) to join the RN?
