Hello all, my son has only just turned 16 and wants to join the navy. I don't know if I'm just being an over protective mum but I think he is too young and should wait a few years. He has already done his entry test, interview, fitness test and medical and now just has to wait for a starting date. I think his careers officer said it would be about Feb/March next year. I think he should carry on with his education for a couple of years and then think about it again. He got good GCSE results which were A* A and B's in 12 subjects. I know he will be a lot safer in the navy compared to the army or marines but I am still not happy about him joining up. I have still got his consent form infront of me that I havn't had the heart to sign sign yet. What is your opinion on this?
