Will do thank you

Point taken!<br />
Suggest he has a look at the work of the Royal Artillery before he decides what part of the army he wants to join.<br />
Wish him well on my behalf

I had to go with him he is 16 and needed me to sign a consent form as hes under 18 if i wasnt letting him make his own choices i wouldn't have gone

Why did YOU go with him, for God's sake? It's HIS life, allow him to make his own decisions. <br />
If he is successful and is accepted, tell him he will find life takes a turn for the worse, just until he accepts the new routine and the discipline! THEN he will be OK<br />
Tell him "Good Luck" from me<br />
