How to Re-join

Can I re-join?

We value your former service and commitment. If you have been in the Regular Army, you can return to full-time service even if you left under the Armed Forces Redundancy Scheme. If you were medically discharged or discharged on disciplinary grounds you may also be eligible to re-join. Re-joiners can apply to enlist up to their 57th birthday.

Re-joining offer

Re-joiners can join their old capbadge, or apply to join a different capbadge providing there are vacancies. They are also eligible for consideration to return in their previous rank and seniority.

Re-joining within 12 months

If a former soldier wishes to re-join the Army within 12 months of leaving, there are opportunities for fast-track entry.
