    Well it wasn't a problem for Hitler and he made it all the way to the very top as a lance corporal.

    Based on the fact that the TA are made up of "enablers" and "fatties"

    It is ok to only have one ball - as long as its a fookin big one. Come to think of it we have soldiers with no balls all over the place (we used to call them WRACs).

    You'll be fine. Most Royal Engineers have at least one appendage missing, so you will fit in well.

    Visit your local Army Careers Office and ask for a copy of "AFCO 5", it contains most of the medical criteria for joining the Armed Forces, failing that, start the recruiting process, one of the first stages is a medical questionnaire, which is sent to Army doctors, it is completely confidential, none of the recruiters get to see what's enclosed and at least that way you get a definitive answer.

    On a serious note, have you been scanned to check whether your other bollock is absent or just undescended? Undescended testes are more prone to developing cancer ( higher temperature) so you really need to know!

    Did it stop when the Argentinians bombed Pearl Necklace?

    No way, sister. This thread may be a load of testicle, but we'll take it one drop at a time.
