Raw Recruits: Squaddies at 16 – Cast
The full cast of Raw Recruits features 45 young soldiers attempting to complete a gruelling Army camp.
Known as Platoon 7, the teens must complete intense physical exams, learn how to handle weapons and cope with the reality of swapping home comforts for barking lieutenants.
All of that, alongside hiding cigarettes and general rebellious teenage antics!
