  1. Hi all first post :D

    I had one of my kidneys removed last year cause it died (random thing to happen) :lol:

    Anyways i always wanted to do infantry in the army but i fear now that i am 1 kidney down i wont get in :(

    But if i can't do infantry would i be able to still do driving or some thing like that maybe ?

    Other then my one missing kidney i think i am pretty good shape :)

    Thanks for any info guys/gals.
  2. I don't want to burst your bubble gothicghost, but I think it's highly unlikely that they'll allow you in. Check with your nearest Army Careers Office, though.

  3. Thought as much there may be a chance i would not get in :(

    I will pop in have chat with the army careers office just to be sure but it not looking good.

  4. GG,

    Check your PMs
  5. Cheers for the info guys i will try my luck with the normal army and if not i will try the TA lol
  6. Sure, the abnormal army is also an open window ;)
  7. you could always train to be a cook,sure you could lay your hands on some kidneys, and well someone will reinsert it for you.
  8. Trust me you don't wont me cooking for the army as i probs make everyone sick or something :twisted:
  9. You'll fit right in then...
