  2. I'm glad it's no longer compulsory here in the UK (in Italy, my motherland, it was finally phased out in 2000). As far as I'm concerned, national service is legalised slavery and sexist (usually it's only men who are required to do so – at least in Israel and Switzerland, both men and women are obliged to do it).

  3. Conscription and the EU! If Britain is forced to stay in the EU, what are the chances of 18-30 somethings being conscripted to serve up to 2 years in an EU army, lets face it, France,Germany and other EU countries are already talking about it, so be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID.

  4. My grandfather was conscripted during the 1950s to West Berlin. He had no interest in joining up and all of the soldiers were really under equipped according to him. He even said that during patrols, they wouldn’t be given any ammunition in their rifles, so even if a firefight broke out, they wouldn’t stand a chance. I’m glad it has since been scrapped though.

  5. Me grandad was init then got sent to korea after that he moved here to the usa and joined the USMC after he got back from tye malayan emergancy coz he wanted to stay in the army so when he moved here to the usa he got deployed to Vietnam then my dad was in the Gulf war and now im gonna join the Usmc when i turn 18
