Even after you had finished your National Service, you were still a "Reservist" till you were 40, so although the Service finished in 1960 it hung over you that you were in line for "call-up" as a trained soldier.

National service ended in 1960 it was originally called conscription but changed to National service in 1948, I hope that answer your question

It was actually 1960!

The last people to be enlisted for National Service in the UK were signed up in November 1960 and discharged in May 1963
