The upper age limit for joining the Territorial Army for those with no previous military experience is 42 years and 11 months for soldier entry and 34 years and 11 months for officer entry. A higher limit can be applied for certain professional or specialist applicants for officer entry; this would not apply, however, to those applying for the units mentioned in the question.
