Become a Soldier


To join The London Regiment you need to be a citizen of the UK, Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland. If you do not hold a British Passport you will need proof of indefinite leave to stay in the UK. You need to be aged between 18 and 43, although older people outside this age group with certain skill sets may still be eligible. Please contact us for further details.

The first step towards joining is to apply online (follow the link on the right).

You can call us or drop in to one of our Army Reserve Centres for an informal visit. We will endeavour to answer all of your questions and assist you in your application wherever possible.

Once we have been notified of your application we will contact you with regards to attending your company of choice on a Tuesday night for introductory lessons.

A medical will be required prior to acceptance, to ensure that you reach the basic requirements of the British Army.
