Hi. I was a young 17 year old WEM who spent my action stations behind the stws tubes on Andromeda with an SLR fitted with match stick for repitition firing.
I had to grow up very quickly over those few months in 1982 but had the honour of doing it with some wonderful people.
I think 17 is very young to be fighting in a war in distant waters. Its nothing new, Bismarck had 17 year olds on board. At that age I would imagine that the growing up fast would be a stark awakening, its not a game.
