Hey guys, I was going to be starting my application within a few weeks, however if that was the case, if all goes to plan, I would pass out when I'm still 17. That would mean, should the rest of my troop get deployed to Afgan (or wherever) I would not be able to go with them. I would much rather leave signing up, so that when I pass out, I would be 18 and able to be deployed straight away, should it come to that. I would need to start my RT about May/June '09 to make sure I am 18 when I pass out. So just really after an idea of when to start my app.? I know I can put things off for a while, but I don't think I'd be able to strech it over a year. Also, how long are PJFT and PRMC's valid for? Ross.
