The army is looking for angels – single and without children, 18 to 28 year olds, not less than 165cm tall, qualified and experienced. Too much to ask. Method of application – antiquated hand-written and post delivered. Why? Your application must have no trace because you are not to benefit from nepotistic shortlisting. Emails are traceable
