The British Army Reserve is launching its new recruitment campaign today at London Waterloo.

Potential recruits will be able to experience life on operations by trying out virtual reality headsets which convey the sensations of being in action.

The Army Reserve says signing up can boost recruits' CVs.

Many Reservists have full-time jobs but use their spare time to train with the Armed Forces and are called up and deployed in the UK or abroad alongside their Regular Army colleagues.
