British army recruits can barely read and write

The recruitment crisis in the British army has reached another bizarre milestone with the revelation that commanders are enlisting recruits with the reading age of a five to seven-year-old.

The Sun newspaper is reporting that “desperate” army chiefs have signed off on the policy of recruiting near-illiterates, presumably to make up for the shortfall in recruitment.

According to the Sun, the latest available figures for army recruitment, covering the period 2016-2019, show 4,240 soldiers had the reading ability of nine to 11-year-olds.

In a shocking revelation fifty had literacy levels of a five to seven-year-old, in direct contravention of established military rules.
