And presumably if you were good enough you would be arrested for not being in the forces or whatnot?

Quite. Although I think those who guested were in the forces. I'll look up the report next time I'm at The Keep.

Yes, they'd mainly be servicemen posted locally.

And you wouldn't necessarily get arrested if you weren't in the forces - apart from exemptions on age, there were also many reserved occupations (miners, farmers, munitions workers etc).
