I am a 31-year-old teacher, who previously spent 5 years in the Infantry serving in NI and Iraq. Having been out for almost 4 years I am enjoying civvie street, but still miss part of service life. I was thinking of joining my local RMR, and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on: 1. If my age would be a problem - I know they say 32 is the limit, but is it longer for previous regular service? 2. Has anyone come across and ex-Army bloke going to the RMR? Is it common? 3. Would I have to go all the way through Phase 1 and 2, or would previous service count towards some of the basic training? Any other thoughts or comments are greatly appreciated - thanks for your time.
