    In the British army you go from 2nd lieutenant to lieutenant not the other way around. Also what is not stated is that only officers can reach the rank of colonel and NCO's (Non commissioned officers) can reach the maximum rank of WO1

    Its 2nd lieutenant to lieutenant, not lieutenant to 2nd lieutenant, its a mistake that you've made.

    um... you might be "able" to apply for the British army at 16 with almost zero qualifications and a criminal record but you won't get in, really, you won't. A minimum of 3 'A' levels and very good fitness is an essential and for officers, well, if you don't have at least a 2.2 degree forget it.

    It just shows that yes the US army is much bigger because its alot bigger country but the way the British army is trained is so much better, I would rather have a small well trained army defending my country then a big army but with badly trained soldiers defending

    I am a currently serving British soldier on leave at the moment and I can say that the Americans are the best country to fight along side in the field (aside from us of course). although they don't seem to fully understand British banter, they are the only other army I would consider joining just on how close they are to their brothers. I have only good things to say about their professionalism; the problem is that they don't seem to turn it off, even in camp they can't have a laugh to the level we do. I once met an american that would seem to... semi-march everywhere and only ever use second names (apparently even within his own unit at camp), however when you needed him in a scrape, he would out preform even the best Brits we had.

    The us may have the better military but god we know how to spend the possible late few minutes of our life.
    British soldiers get out their tea,drink it and run in there full charge even when they know they might die.Anyways hope that the U.K. And the US stay allies and we should stop comparing them and talk about how strong they are together

    •But the founding fathers of the USA are mostly British.
    •Without the Europeans moving to America there would be no Americans now instead it will be full of Indian Americans living there.
    •Most Americans speak the language of the Brits which is the English language.
    •Most Americans have surname that came from the Brits.
    •They say that most of the Americans have British ancestry.

    As a Scot, I always seen Americans as ignorant fools who do nothing but stereotype other countries because whenever I would play a video game I would get harassed by them about my accent and all that but I’ve definitely changed my opinion from all the lovely folk in the comments respecting us. I now see that all the jackasses who harrassed me probably were the biggest toxic shits of America. Massive respect to the US, I’m glad we’re allies.

    Let me say how it is (from a soldiers view in the British Army). You get 38 paid days leave (bare in mind guard duties could inflict), your starting wage at Phase 1 is just over £900 per month (goes up after 26 weeks to Privates/Riflemen/Sapper/Trooper and so on pay over £1200 a month), quality of accommodation (in block, SLA is like 2 or 3 star hotel very basic, nothing special). they're are cutting FHTB scheme and they're cutting Commitment Bonus now. Our equipment isn't great, for example the Vertis Body Armour and we're undermanned to an extent.

    first I think canadiens are great soldiers because they are a mix of U.S and british mentality and the fact that they have shit equipment makes them find a way to survive and fight on.I also think it sucks that officers get paid more when they are safe behind the lines most of the time while the real fighters get less

    The fitness has changed it used to be run 1.5 mile in 15 mins as a squad every one starts the run together an finishes to gether then after that you run 1.5 mile again as fast as you can
    In 7 mins or faded my fastest was 6.30. Also the pension 35 years no in 02 when I was discharged 22 years service pension starts straight away but you can take a lump sum ie. Commuting you then get pension when your 55. What S this 35 year thing . The the saying life begins at 40
    Is an army thing join at 18 service starts then at 40 service finished
    22 years is the limit . Hence the saying life begins at 40.

    Not sure about those stats for the UK pension. I knew a guy that was only in his 30s that quit his job and was getting £800 a month from the government and that was on top of the new job wages. He says it was going to go up to £1600 eventually, I can't remember how long but not for a good while. He had been in the Air Force though.
