BECOMING A RESERVIST

When you join the Army Reserve, in most cases you'll need to pass the same tests as those joining as a full time soldier or officer. If you're rejoining, you may need to follow a different process - your recruiter will be able to give you more information.

HOW TO APPLY

DID YOU KNOW?

As a member of the Army Reserve, you may be asked to go on operations, to serve alongside Regular soldiers.
