I have recently acquired a conviction which will not be spent for 5 years, which will make me 30 before I can join the navy. What I wanted was your opinions on whether you all thought that would make me to old to get a good career out of the navy? As I realisemost people aremuch younger when they join, I wondered if that would disadvantage me in ay way? e.g harder to work my way up the ranks, etc. I would probably stay in thenvy until I retired when I do join, but just wondered if 30 made me over the hill from a "starting navel career" pointo view.
