Just went to the recruitment night at my local unit last night and had the talk and am really keen now to get started. I've decided to join as a rating - looks like you get to play with all the fun toys!! - my only concern is that being 38 getting fully trained will take me over 40. If I want to try for officer later would this be a problem? Also can I decide I want to try for officer or do I have to be recommended from my unit? Cheers for any help in advance.
