[/Banter]Honestly, this forever happening "A is better than B" contesting between military units, branches and nations is always useless as they are prepared against different tasks or threats.
On the most serious side: Just interested, sorry for being part of the topic hijacking here.
How long is the usual reserve age in the UK and will they get called in for additional service later on? Or are they like our Local Defence Troops so they are just kind of voluntary militia?
Too lazy to google around and would be fun to hear personal experiences.
Here we're conscripted at age of 18 and usually serve from age of 19-20 and most get at-least 6 months of branch and basic training (can be up to 12 months in some tasks + NCO and Ofc. Cadet tasks). After they have been trained they might be called for refreshing training until age of 50 (or something near that) when they are removed from reserves. That usually happens much earlier though because we have steady amount of new personnel.
