You wont feel like the odd one out, there was a 30 year old guy in my old Platoon, was from the carribean and was the funniest guy in the platoon. You just may be older than the cpls and just a tad younger than the platoon sgts but you definately wont be the odd one out.

Quite a few south africans in the Army, One in my old platoon from cape town and i knew a few others from south africa. Alot of people from over-seas i guess what the guy said above is the best way, there wont be any problems though.

If your going for Infantry/Para then dont bother running 1.5 or taking protein shakes. When you get to Catterick alot will be expected from you from Week 2+, Week 1 is awfully boring medicals, paperwork ETC. Then you do your First fitness test, 1.5mile run max pressups max situps. Dont be fooled abo...

By basic you mean training? When i was at Catterick we started with 51, varied to 52 and 54 (because of people being back squadded) then when I left on week 11 there was 46 and many more handing in DAOR's.
