48 years old is the age limit, anyone under that age is eligible for national service.
I think he will have a big problem if he returns as he didn't get paperwork on leaving last time and might be considered a flight risk, he may be forced into the army as things weren't sorted properly last time.
I'm not trying to scare you, just a warning. You might be better seeking advice from TRNC embassy in Bedford Square London.

I think she meant BRS - British Residents Society : I very much doubt if they can help, but it would do no harm to check their Website and maybe speak to someone. It might also be worth trying to speak to someone from the Immigration and/or Military (with a translator if necessary) to ask for a special one off remission and./or permission for a brief stay on compassionate grounds.

PS Mowgli: why pick on what was obviously a typo, from the very many terribly grammatic and spelling bricks here. I shall take it as permisson to make fun of the next booboo I notice!

Oh dear. Funny bone out of order today RR? Though I shall take your response as irony (i.e. you’d like to flatten me!)

Although I could have presumed (not assumed for that makes an ass out of u and me) that the original contributor was trying to say RBL - they being militarily inclined and all.

Never mind

You're not wrong Mowgli, I was struggling with RBL, having a service background, but knew there was an S in it.......

Actually Mowgli I just got fed up with people yelling "spelling police" if I pointed out an error. With or without humour. I am making the point that sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander! And I do differentiate between blatant ignorance or disregard of syntax and obvious simple typos.

Actually Cally I though at first you meant RBL, but I could not work out what influence they would have on the Turkish Army.

Try piles.

Well, when I say “try piles” all I mean is that it’s easier to spell

Who started this rathole anyway? Oh!

PS Since we are so far down the rathole, anyone else lost Multimax in Ozanköy or is it just me

Mowgli: I was actually going to try "piles" but decided it was cheating!

I have MM at the moment - or I could not be typing this - but it was slow connecting and VPN for BBC has been very dicy the last two or three nights, so perhaps another Turkish problem. btw I thought the connection was undersea , not down a rat hole... Or rather rabbit hole since we appear to have got into wonderland.

I do differentiate between blatant ignorance or disregard of syntax and obvious simple typos. Quote from my earlier post - please take the trouble to read what I say!

By 'booboo' you appeared to mean mistakes / typos, and I was simply responding to your obvious (and thus, hilarious, typo earlier in the same post.

If it's any consolation, I only ever bother to point out these sort of mistakes when made by either you or Groucho, because you both know better! - and in Groucho's case, he invariably claims that "it was a 'typo' ", while doing a little jig any time that he picks up on one of mine

PAX !!
