Cousins join Army.
Paul Peacock and Michael Paolozzi, both from North Shields, signed up to the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers as infantrymen.
Paul, 23, and Michael, 17, will start their training at the Infantry Training Centre (ITC) Catterick at the end of April. They will learn the basic skills including weapon handling and field survival.
Both will be able to gain qualifications during their careers such as the driving licences required for them to operate some military vehicles.
Paul said: "It's been an ambition of mine for as long as I can remember to join the Army and to be finally realising it is really exciting, especially as I'll share the experience with my cousin, Michael.''
