Updates to article needed[edit]

For example...

"Within the United Kingdom, operational and non-deployable units are administered by three regionally defined "regenerative" divisions (2nd, 4th, and 5th)..."

This is no longer the case. Sumorsǣte (talk) 23:05, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

7th boat of the Astute-Class[edit]

Is not named HMS Ajax. It has never been officially named.

http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-latest-activity/news/2016/march/18/160318-hms-artful "HMS Astute, HMS Ambush, and now Artful, are the first of the Class to be accepted by Navy Command, which is responsible for operating all of the Royal Navy's vessels. The next two submarines in the Class, Audacious and Anson, are currently being built in Barrow, with Agamemnon and the unnamed Boat 7 to follow."

Military age[edit]

I know people join at 16, but should there not be a note pointing out that it is 18+ for active duty (or however it is technically phrased)? Sumorsǣte (talk) 20:50, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
