    You do need qualifications for majority of roles in the British army, GCSE'S. And u can apply with parental consent at 16, do 6 months training but u will not be posted overseas or at an active army base until 18. U are classed as a reserve soldier until you turn 18 as you are not of legal age to be sent out to fight as 18 is the age of adulthood.

    FUN FACT: The coolant water in a tank in the 1st world war used to heat up rapidly, so the tank crew decided to put it into use by using the tank as one giant kettle and making tea. The MOD (Ministry Of Defence) saw this, and they decided to add a tea making station in every British tank.

    UK, may not be as physically strong as the American Army, but the British Army just have an overall great aspect, and as seen in the video, we have less deaths, even when fighting in the same war, we're smart, and play the game.

    Despite that, still the American Army, and British Army are VERY strong, and I thank them all for their service to two great countries and powers!

    Wrong British soldiers do get paid extra for being deployed, you get money for being deployed even money for being out of camp on a exercise it's called lsa and loa and depending on how long your tour is you can also get a tour bonus. Each job also has different qualifaction levels so yes maybe you don't need much of a education for the infantry you do for almost every other role in the army

    more u.s. soldiers commit suicide than killed in battle. More British soldiers were killed by americans than by Iraqis. the u.s. used non disclosed depleted uranium which Britsh medics werent warned of. its leaving my sister with cancer and without the will to live. u.s. denial is a joke and denies her medical care. i will assist her wished suicide but america made her that way and medical assessement pushed her over the edge.

    The British Army pay structure for officers is wrong. A 2nd Lieutenant is ranked lower than a lieutenant, indeed it is the first rank an Army officer receives. The pay is understandably slightly less. I believe the figures are mixed up.

  • Yoruichi The Extra Terrestrial

    I wouldn't really call it 'soldiering on' as much as being able to think on your feet and make do with the situation.
    The chips may be down but there's always at least two ways out, although one does involve being defeated. But until you get killed or thrown in a POW camp, there's still a way to win, either way, it's what you signed up to so just follow your training and add a little instinct and improvisation.

    I am NOT a sexist, but I personally don't agree with women being allowed as infantry roles. And here is why:
    Their body is not designed to fight, nor build alot of muscle on, as such cannot perform as well as a male soldier
    Their health and fertility deteriorates RAPIDLY, and example includes the American Sergeant in the Marines, who states clearly "women should not be allowed. Women are physically inferior to men." and she goes on to describe on how her health is slowly killing her.

    In conclusion, I believe women CAN join the army/navy(Royal, US) air force, just not infantry roles.
