What are people’s thoughts here about an 18 year old joining 4 para as opposed to as a full time regular? Is it rare that a younger guy joins the army reserves?

Im sure a lot of uni students are in the reserves so I wouldn’t get bogged down on age but why aren’t you leaning towards regular

I’m planning on working full time with a family company using the trade I got from college

Fair enough mate. No one is going to care about your age and once you start you’ll all be on an equal footing just bare in mind that younger applicants tend to struggle a bit more than lads in their 20s. Just work hard and your age won’t be an issue
