    I am a female and 4 foot 9 inches short. I'm 16 so it's pretty much impossible that I grow any further, but I really want to join the British army and I'm afraid my height will get in the way, am I correct to assume this?

    Why would you assume the worst when looking at something you want to do?
    Go to the Army website and have a look at the requirements on there. If 'being 4'9"' isn't a blocker, then apply!

    Hi

    The Minimum height requirement is 148cm except for employments which involve driving, when the minimum height is 158cm.
