Army launches £3m recruitment drive

The British army is launching a £3m recruitment campaign aimed at boosting both the regular and reserve forces.

It comes at a time when the Army is being cut from 100,000 troops to some 82,000, but the Ministry of Defence says it needs new recruits.

It wants to increase the size of the Army Reserve from 19,000 to 30,000, but has failed to meet its targets so far.
