The article reports on the need of the British army to recruit ethnic minorities via mainstream routes if it is to become more diverse. Colonel David Allfrey, second highest ranking officer responsible for recruitment, expresses his desire to see more Asian and Muslim people signing up at recruitment roadshows, college visits and through advertising, rather than relying on the work of the army's diversity action recruitment team. The army's goal is for 8 per cent of recruits to be from ethnic minorities by 2013.
