Bid to end Army from recruiting under-18s

2 posts in this topic

A former Defence Minister has called for the British Army to stop recruiting ‘boy soldiers’ – a move that would bring an end to centuries of military tradition.

Sir Nick Harvey says letting 16 and 17-year-olds join the Forces is outdated. He claims they are more likely to die or be seriously wounded, and that millions of pounds are wasted due to high drop-out rates.

But it would create more people jobless if they cant get work and you dont get into action at 16 years old anyway.
