    I am a 40 year old looking to join the Royal Navy Reserve. I always thought the age limit was 40 (i.e. you could join at forty), but now, according to the new website I should be "less than forty years old". I am confused. Can some one enlighten me please?

  2. Up to the age of 40 if you have no previous military service. Up to 45 if you have.
  3. I believe (I was told at HMS Cambria), that you must join before your 40th birthday, assuming no previous service.
  4. Thanks for the replies. Looks as though I'm shafted then. I'll have to accept that I'm an old git and take up dominoes or something...
  5. You could become a walt and join the RNA. They're quite good with the dominoes thing.
  6. Look at your existing civilian skills, if any, and join a TA unit. You'll be deployable within about 5 months and may have the opportunity to contribute to operations before all but the most specialised people are out of Afghanistan.
